The second edition of the The Next Web Conference Latin America is fast approaching and we’re looking for teams to take the stage at the Startup Rally competition.

The Startup Rally is always one of the highlights of our conferences. It’s a great opportunity to put your company in front of the eyes of the world… and a panel of judges who could select you to take the prize.

Any startup can apply as long as you have less than €2 million ($2.6m) in external funding. The twenty finalists chosen to take part will get to present on the main stage at our Latin America conference, taking place in São Paulo on 28 and 29 August 2013.

So, if you’d like to launch or announce a new product, service or feature in front of a live audience of 1,000 people and an online audience of more than 20,000, you’ll want to know how to apply, right?

Startups can apply via an online questionnaire before June 14th. In the following rounds you’ll be asked to participate in a video pitch and Skype interview. On July 1st, an expert jury will select 16 startups for the finals of the Rally. The remaining four finalists will be selected out of all the startups that have a demo desk or startup table during the event.

And if you don’t want to apply but still want to attend the conference, tickets are available now and when you register for two or more TNW Latin America Conference tickets now, you get 30% off the total price. See you in São Paulo!
