Disrupt Startup Alley allows you to pitch your idea. Companies invited to participate in the next Extra Crunch Live episodes

Disrupt 2019 is just around the corner. This year’s show will be packed with amazing panels and discussions, a Startup Battlefield group of highly-regarded companies that launches on our stage, investor insight, and a Virtual Expo Hall full of new services and products in the Startup Alley.

We cannot wait. Literally. We’re going to give you guys a peek at Disrupt startups in the upcoming Extra Crunch Live episodes.

Extra Crunch Live usually meets with investors and founders to discuss how they came to be partners and how to help startups raise capital. The second half of the episode features the same guests giving live feedback to the viewers who are invited on the virtual stage to pitch their products.

Everyone loves a great pitch-off, truth be told. Extra Crunch Live’s Startup Alley Edition episode will feature a pitch-off. SUA companies will each take to the stage and get 60 seconds to impress us with their startups. Without expert feedback, it would not be a pitch-off.

It’s exciting to announce that investors will be joining me on this episode to share their wisdom and insights with the startup community and our audience.

On September 1, we’ll be joined by Neil Sequeira, co-founder and partner at defy.vc, as well as Stacey Bishop, partner at Scale Venture Partners.
