A big shout out to all you savvy startuppers — the day you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived. Yup, registration for Disrupt Berlin 2019 is officially open for business. We’re kicking things off with a super early-bird special, and that means only one thing — serious savings. Buy your passes now, and you can save up to €600. Das ist wunderbar!

Our premier tech conference takes place on 11-12 December, and it draws an international startup community from more than 50 countries. There’s no better place to discuss, learn about and showcase the game-changing technologies that promise to shape the future.

You’ll experience two full days of intense programming. That includes world-class speakers and panelists — founders, investors and icons — who share their experiences, advice and insight. Last year, we had the pleasure of hearing Frank Salzgeber (European Space Agency), Lizzie Chapman (ZestMoney) and Rafal Modrzewski (ICEYE) — just to name a few. We’re building our 2019 roster as we speak, and it will not disappoint!

Don’t you dare miss the Startup Battlefield. A cohort of outstanding early-stage startups competes for glory, the Disrupt Cup and $50,000 in equity-free cash as they launch their companies on a world stage. What’s more, all the competitors receive an abundance of investor and media interest. This event can change the trajectory of your business — as it did for hundreds of other companies, including Vurb, Dropbox, Mint, Yammer and many more.

The Startup Alley expo hall is a networking paradise filled with hundreds of startups showcasing their considerable tech talents. It’s also home to a cadre of outstanding startups — our TC Top Picks. We vet applications and choose up to five startups that represent the best in a range of tech categories. It’s another great way to gain invaluable exposure.

You never know who you’ll meet in the Alley or where that chance connection might lead. Looking for a more efficient way to network? Use CrunchMatch, our free business-matching platform. It lets you find, connect and schedule meetings with people based on mutual criteria, goals and interests.

We’re entering the final days leading up to Startup Battlefield Africa 2018, which takes place on 11 December. We have our passports, we’re packing our bags and we can’t wait to arrive in Lagos, Nigeria to watch 15 of the continent’s best startups launch to the world.

Will you be there cheering the competitors and celebrating the richness of Africa’s growing startup scene? We’ve sold out of tickets to the day-long event, but — and this is great news — we set aside a limited quantity of tickets that we’re giving away for free. If you want one, act now and apply for a free ticket before they disappear.

Center stage of this day-long, action-packed event is, of course, our renowned pitch competition, Startup Battlefield. Out of hundreds of applications, we winnowed the field to 15 remarkable early-stage startups across Africa. Startup Battlefield consists of three preliminary rounds — five teams per round — followed by a final round.

Teams have only six minutes to pitch and demo their product to a panel of expert judges. After each pitch, the judges run the presenting founders through a gauntlet of tough questions. Up to five teams will move on to the finals to pitch and answer questions again.

One team will claim the Startup Battlefield Cup, along with US$25,000 in no-equity cash. Plus, the winning founders also win a trip for two and the opportunity to compete in Startup Battlefield at a TechCrunch Disrupt in 2019.

Between rounds, we have a slew of outstanding presentations and panelists scheduled to discuss the most pressing issues facing early-stage startups in the region. Check out the conference agenda, but some of the people you’ll hear and learn from include:

  • Omobola Johnson, a senior partner at TLcom Capital, is the former minister of communication technology for Nigeria. Her 25-year tenure at Accenture — as managing director — informs her expansive knowledge of startup investing.
  • Lexi Novitske, the principal investment officer for Singularity Investments, manages the firm’s Africa portfolio. She’s a proponent of understanding local complexities, modifying Western business attitudes and working with companies to ensure desired results.
  • Marième Diop, an investor at Orange Digital Ventures Africa, focuses on early-stage African startups, and she’ll be talking all about venture capital.
  • Shikoh Gitau, the head of product at Safaricom’s Alpha incubator, will share her perspective on the talent and innovation within Africa’s expanding startup landscape. She’ll also talk about repatriating entrepreneurs.

Come and join us in Lagos on 11 December. Experience Startup Battlefield Africa 2018, engage in world-class networking and spend a full day celebrating the awesome talent of the region’s startup community. All you need to do is apply for your free ticket right here.
