TechCrunch battlefield is an event that brings the world’s top early stage startups together on one stage. They will compete for the coveted Disrupt Cup, a $50,000 prize, and the attention of media and investors. The most recent public tech company, Dropbox, also prides itself as one of the winners of the battlefield.
Well, TechCrunch is headed back to Africa with an aim of finding the next wave of early-stage Startups. These startups, they say, must be tackling very big ideas! The previous edition of TechCrunch’s Startup Battlefield was held in Nairobi, Kenya. The event featured up to 15 early-stage startups from across the continent.
There is no doubt that with these developments, the western world are getting quite interested in the tech startup scene in sub-Saharan Africa. As a result, the team at TechCrunch are looking forward to meeting the next crop of innovators in the coming weeks.
Hence, CcHUB is cordially inviting the general public to a meet and greet with members of the Techcrunch team. In this event, you can meet Startup Battlefield Director, Samantha Stein, while also learning more about TechCrunch’s Startup Battlefield program. The program is open to Investors, angels, startup community leaders, and startup founders. Here, you’ll learn more about the upcoming Startup battlefield Africa.
If you’re a startup founder, you are sure to learn how to apply for Battlefield with a kickass application,. On the other hand, investors will learn how to refer companies in their portfolio. To be candid, it’s going to be a very great event to tell it all about battlefield.
The Startup Battlefield alumni community comprises almost 750 companies that have raised over $8 billion USD. This number has also produced over 100 successful exits and IPOs. Past winners include names like Vurb, Dropbox, Mint, Yammer and many more. Another very good thing is that, participation is entirely free and open.
