Disrupt is just around the corner. This year's show features incredible panels and discussions, a Startup Battlefield cohort that launches on our stage, investor insight, and a virtual expo hall filled with exciting new products in the Startup Alley.
We cannot wait! Literally. We wanted to give you guys a glimpse at some of Disrupt's startups in the upcoming Extra Crunch Live episodes.

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

A good pitch-off is something that everyone loves, truth be told. Extra Crunch Live's Startup Alley Edition episodes will feature a pitch-off. SUA companies will each take to the stage and each have 60 seconds to impress us with their startup. Without expert feedback, it wouldn't be a pitch-off.
