TechCrunch’s editors review thousands of apps and then select 200 well-known, early-stage startups deemed to have the biggest and most positive impact. All founders of SB 200 companies get not only the cache that comes with the famous TechCrunch seal, but also many other benefits, advantages and opportunities:
Full access to Disruption: SB 200 founders attend Riot for free, receive four complimentary passes and VIP access to all presentations, picnics and table seating.
Free exhibition space for the whole show: SB 200 will be the only first stage startup allowed to show at Riot. No one can buy their way to the exhibition floor.
Investor interest and media exposure: Investors chasing future unicorns and journalists looking for the next big story will take the exhibit floor to meet and greet SB 200 founders.
Workshops and nail training; SB 200 founders will be invited to special workshops and masterclasses in the weeks leading up to the impeachment. You’ll get exclusive pitch training from TechCrunch staff and a one-year TechCrunch+ membership.
Flashcards for an audience of investors and TC editors: That training will come in handy when you step onto the stage. You’ll get invaluable feedback, and you can tap into an investor’s portfolio.
A shot at $100,000 TechCrunch editors select 20 startups from SB 200 startups as Startup Battlefield finalists. The founders of those 20 companies will receive personal pitch coaching, be featured in an article on TechCrunch, and present on stage in front of a live audience. The eventual winner will take home the $100,000 equity-free prize and all the honors.
