We’re just a few short weeks away from the inaugural 2018 that takes place November 8 at the Tomie Ohtake Institute in São Paulo, Brazil. That’s when up to 15 of Latin ’s exceptional early-stage founders will launch their companies to the world as they compete for cash, glory and investor love.

It promises to be a fierce competition, and we want you to come revel in the excitement, the knowledge-sharing, the networking and the opportunities. Best of all, spectator are — simply right here. We’ll select people in the Latin American startup scene on a first-come-first-served basis. We’ll notify all ticket winners via email.

Here’s how the Startup Battlefield format works. During three preliminary rounds, up to five startups per round will each have six minutes to pitch and present their demo before a panel of expert tech and VC judges. The judges have six minutes following each pitch to ask teams probing questions. Five of the competing startups will move on to the finals and pitch again to a new set of judges.

One finalist will be named the first TechCrunch Startup Battlefield Latin America champion and win a $25,000 non-equity cash prize and a trip for two to the next Disrupt, where they can exhibit free of charge in the Startup Alley — and possibly qualify to participate in the Startup Battlefield at Disrupt.

In-between all the fast-paced Startup Battlefield rounds, we’ve gathered an outstanding lineup of speakers to discuss a range of tech topics of interest to the LATAM region. Here’s just a sample:
