·3-min read

Here’s a fantastic opportunity for all university-level, student-led climate startups determined to alter the course of climate change. Buy a student pass to TC Sessions: Climate and The Extreme Tech Challenge 2022 Global Finals — on June 14 in Berkeley, California — and you’re eligible to apply to the TechCrunch Student Pitch Competition.

TechCrunch wants to invite the best student-led climate startups to TC Disrupt 2022, our three-day flagship event on October 18-20. To that end, the pitch competition winners — we’ll select two — will each receive a free pass to Disrupt and a three-night stay in a San Francisco hotel.

The application process is simple, but it’s time sensitive. This is no time to procrastinate. Here’s what you need to know to apply.

  1. Buy a student pass to TC Sessions: Climate 2022.

  2. Moments later, you'll receive a confirmation email with a link to the student pitch competition application.

  3. Record a 60-second video of your pitch, answer a few questions about your startup and submit your video.

You must submit your pitch video and application no later than May 30. TechCrunch will review all submitted video pitches and notify the two winners on June 6.

What else can you expect from TC Sessions: Climate? Funding is heating up almost as fast as the planet. Climate tech startups received more than $40 billion from investors last year, and you’ll hear from leading VCs about what they’re investing in, current trends and where they see climate tech growth opportunities.
