Tech news publishing website TechCrunch for the very first time will be present in Latin America to stage its first-ever Startup Battlefield Latin America on November 8 in São Paulo to find the next wave of early-stage startups tackling big ideas!
To spread the word, TechCrunch’s Jon Shieber and Anna Escher will visit Buenos Aires and Santiago next week to meet with the startup community and hold meetups for anyone interested in learning more about the Startup Battlefield. They’ll also spend time explaining how to apply. Tickets to the meetups are free, but they will go fast, so sign up now.
At the meetup, founders will learn how to apply for Battlefield and investors will learn how to refer companies in their portfolio.
TechCrunch will provide a brief presentation on Startup Battlefield and answer questions. Applications close next month, and when they do, our editors will choose 15 companies to compete, and one will win $25,000 and a free trip to the next Disrupt SF. All the companies, however, will receive global exposure, winners or not, because video from their pitches onstage in front of top-tier judges will be posted on TechCrunch.
Startup Battlefield is the world’s premier startup launch competition. To date, the Startup Battlefield alumni community comprises almost 750 companies that have raised more than $8 billion USD, and produced over 100 successful exits and IPOs.
TechCrunch COO Ned Desmond is currently in São Paulo and Mexico City this week hosting meetups and briefings for TechCrunch Startup Battlefield Latin America.
