We’re here at TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin 2018, with the newest batch of Startup Battlefield companies. Each year, TechCrunch chooses a select number of innovative startups to compete in Startup Battlefield — TechCrunch’s premier global startup launch competition. The startups are vying for the famed Disrupt Cup and a $50,000USD equity-free grand prize.
The teams have been training rigorously for several weeks with the Startup Battlefield and TechCrunch editorial teams, perfecting their stage pitch, business models, and live demos. Each team will have exactly 6 minutes to pitch on the Main Stage in front a live audience and a worldwide livestream. Founders will then face an intense Q&A session with our panel of expert judges from industry and VC. The top companies from today will go on to pitch again in the final round of Startup Battlefield on Friday in front of a new panel of judges.
