  • Submit your application and video until September 9.

All 20 finalists will receive free tickets to Disrupt, two free tickets to any TechCrunch event in 2023, and Blackstone LaunchPad merchandise. The top six finalists will also receive:

  • Complimentary 3 night stay at a San Francisco hotel during Disrupt 2022.
  • TechCrunch article coverage
  • Mentoring session with Blackstone LaunchPad and Techstars staff

The competition is 100% free and industry agnostic – we encourage students working in any vertical to apply. While we are happy to consider applications from students with a functioning MVP, the final winners will be student-led startups in the idea stage, product/market fit, and growth stage.

Take a look at just some of the universities whose student-led startups have already applied. We are already impressed by the scale of ideas and products that have come to our table from students from all over the world.

  • London School of Economics
  • Morehouse College
  • University of California, Los Angeles
  • University of California, Berkeley
  • Columbia Business School

The fall semester starts in a few weeks, so we encourage students to apply now before college starts, you know, college.

Destruction TechCrunch 2022 will be held October 18-20 in San Francisco, and October 21 will be an online day. Don’t miss your chance to win free Disrupt Passes and a 3-day stay in San Francisco. Apply for the TechCrunch Student Presentation Competition by September 9th. A one-minute presentation can jump-start your startup dreams.
