It’s not easy for budget-conscious founders to part with cold, hard cash. Or for time-strapped investors to push a to-do item higher up the priority list. But do it you must if you plan to attend Disrupt San Francisco 2018 on September 5-7 (and if you aren’t planning to go, you have some splainin’ to do).
On July 25, the prices go up on passes to Disrupt SF 2018, and while these three program-packed days provide outstanding value at any price, there’s just no reason to pay more if you don’t have to. Go buy your passes today and — depending on the type of pass you purchase — you can save up to $1,200 for your trouble.
Let’s talk about experience and the content you can expect at Disrupt SF 2018. First, we’ve moved to seriously comfortable digs over at Moscone Center West, which also triples the amount of our floor space. There’s plenty of room for the 10,000 attendees — plus more than 1,200 startups and exhibitors you’ll find showcasing an amazing array of tech in Startup Alley. This huge, vibrant exhibit hall is the pulse of Disrupt and a veritable vortex of networking, collaboration and opportunity.
And when you’re exploring Startup Alley, don’t forget to swing by and check out the 50+ startups that earned a Tech Crunch Top Pick designation. We chose five companies to represent each of these 12 category tracks: AI, AR/VR, Blockchain, Biotech, Fintech, Gaming, Healthtech, Privacy/Security, Space, Mobility, Retail or Robotics. It’s a phenomenal cohort, indeed.
Of course, Disrupt events always feature tech glitterati, business titans, fearless founders and leading investors, and Disrupt SF 2018 is no exception. Our stellar roster of speakers includes, among many others, Sophia Amoruso, CEO, GirlBoss; Roelof Botha, partner, Sequoia Capital; and Drew Houston, co-founder and CEO, Dropbox. You can take a look at the full lineup of speakers here.
It’s not Disrupt without Startup Battlefield, the premier startup competition and hands-down the best platform from which to launch an early-stage company to the world. In keeping with the bigger, better, bolder nature of DSF ’18, we’ve doubled the prize money, and this year’s champion will claim $100,000 in non-equity cash. Startup Battlefield is always a wild ride, and given the stakes, you do not want to miss this one.
Startup Battlefield isn’t the only Disrupt event to get the super-size treatment. We upped the ante on the hackathon, too by making it a Virtual Hackathon open to anyone anywhere in the world. Thousands of the world’s best hackers, developers and programmers are hard at work. Come to Disrupt and see what tech magic they’ve conjured. Who knows, you might just witness The Next Big Thing.
We’re still just scratching the surface of Disrupt. Enjoy interactive workshops and Q&A Sessions, find the founder/investor of your dreams with CrunchMatch, our easy-peasy networking platform, collect swag and, whatever you do, don’t miss the after party.
Disrupt San Francisco 2018 takes place on September 5-7 at Moscone Center West. The price increase goes into effect on July 25 at 5 p.m. PST. Don’t miss your chance to get the best price possible. Buy your tickets today.
