Dubai, 12 September 2018: The first TechCrunch Startup Battlefield in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), presented by FBstart, will be hosted on October 3rd 2018 in the heart of the vibrant startup ecosystem at Beirut Digital District (BDD).

The Battlefield will present start-ups the opportunity to compete and win a $25,000 prize, as well as being exposed to a big global investment community. 
Additionally, two members from the winning startup will receive an all-expenses paid trip to participate in a future TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco. 

Mike Butcher, Editor at Large, TechCrunch said “We are looking forward to bringing TechCrunch Startup Battlefield to Beirut for our first event in the Middle East and North Africa. The startup and tech scene in the region is moving incredibly quickly and we are excited that Startup Battlefield might just find the world’s next unicorns.”
