Disrupt SF to Feature Both Israeli AND Brazilian Pavilions!

PavilionsThe upcoming TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco will not only feature the third Israeli Pavilion, it will also have an inaugural Brazilian Pavilion… This is fantastic news for the Brazilian startup community! 

A bit of background: Back at Disrupt San Francisco in 2011 no less than 20 early-stage Israeli startups flew-in from Israel to demo and network themselves to the bone for three non-stop days in an area of the conference hall we called the ‘Israeli Pavilion’.

The inaugural Pavilion was such a success, we decided to have another one at the past Disrupt in NYC. Yet another 20 Israeli startups participated and it was a huge success.

Considering Initial Capital’s activity in Brazil I brought up the idea of having a Brazilian Pavilion at the next Disrupt and there was immediate support for it at TechCrunch.

What exactly are the Pavilions?

They’re basically extensions of the Startup Alley that include:

  • A cocktail table for the entire duration of the event.
  • Two tickets for the entire duration of the event.
  • Signage.

You get all this for $1000. Killer, unbeatable price!

Note that only startups with less than $2M in funding and are less than two years old are eligible to participate. Also, Pavilion startups are not eligible to be voted for as the daily ‘Crowd Favorite’ (that goes up to present on the Battlefield stage).

  • Israeli Startups can sign-up, here.
  • Brazilian Startups can sign-up, here.

If you are interested in sponsoring either Pavilion or have any questions about participation, email me at:
