TechCrunch, the leading startup website, is bringing its Startup Battlefield event to the MENA region for the first time.
TechCrunch Startup Battlefield will be held in partnership with Facebook, at the Beirut Digital District (BDD) on 3rd October.
The competition brings early stage startups together for a chance to compete and win a $25,000 prize, as well as being exposed to a large global investment community. The alumni community of 763 companies previously featured in TechCrunch Startup Battlefield have raised over $8 billion in funding.
Two members from the winning startup will additionally get fully sponsored to pitch their idea at the Startup Battlefield in TechCrunch Disrupt 2019 in San Francisco.
During the Startup Battlefield, each of the competing teams will get the chance to pitch their startups in front of the TechCrunch community, alongside a live audience of technologists, entrepreneurs and investors from the region.
The event expects to showcase entrants from more than 20 different countries including Lebanon, Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi, UAE, Bahrain, Egypt and Algeria.
TechCrunch will also be meeting with up to 70 founders and startups in the region to better recruit the most innovative and best technical entrepreneurs in the area. Teams interested in exhibiting at TechCrunch Disrupt can apply at https://apply.techcrunch.com/signin
