In addition to exhibiting, each of these startups will also present their products to thousands of Disrupt Berlin attendees from the TechCrunch Showcase Stage — in the heart of the Startup Alley exhibit floor.
And don’t forget, these companies will stand alongside hundreds of other compelling startups displaying their tech and talent in Startup Alley. It’s an experience you do not want to miss.
In fact, it’s not too late for your company to plant its flag in Startup Alley, but you need to act quickly because space will sell out. Check out the Startup Alley Exhibitor Package here. Just bear in mind that exhibiting companies must be less than two years old and have raised less than $2.5M in funding.
And if you're interested in meeting these amazing companies in person, you can snag a General Admission ticket to Disrupt Berlin at the Early Bird pricing. That'll save you over €300 if you get yours before 3 November.
Disrupt Berlin takes place December 4-5, 2017 at Arena Berlin, Eichenstraße 412435. Come and join the excitement.
