TechCrunch is proud to announce the 20 companies represented in the startup Battlefield. Over the next five days, founders from around the world will connect remotely to play live on the TechCrunch Disrupt 2020 virtual stage. Our most competitive startups to date are competing for $ 100,000 stock-free prize money, the attention of tier 1 investors and the global press.
