Our biggest, boldest Disrupt takes place at Moscone Center West on September 5-7, and you’re running short on time to get the best possible price. Our early-bird pricing detonates at midnight PST on July 25, so stop procrastinating and go buy your pass to the best tech startup show going. Get your ticket today.
We can list all sorts of reasons for you to go, and believe us, we will. But consider what one of your peers — Luke Heron, an early-stage founder and CEO of TestCard.com — thinks about the Disrupt experience.
“I’m a serial proselytizer when it comes to TechCrunch events. If you’re a startup founder or an entrepreneur, attending Disrupt is a no-brainer.”
Heron also took advantage of CrunchMatch, our free, curated business match-making service that helps connect founders with investors who share similar business goals.
“We used the CrunchMatch platform to schedule a bunch of meetings on our second day of the show. We met with six or seven VCs and, by and large, they were very positive meetings.”
If you’re an investor specializing in early-stage startups, Disrupt SF 2018 is an essential event. You’ll see an incredible cohort of pre-Series A companies go head-to-head in Startup Battlefield, where they’ll vie for $100,000 in non-equity cash and life-changing investor love.
Here’s what early-stage investor Michael Kocan of Trend Discovery had to say about his Disrupt experience.
“I get the most value at the intersection of CrunchMatch and Startup Battlefield. If I see an interesting company present on stage, I use CrunchMatch to quickly schedule a meeting with them for later that day. It makes vetting deals extremely efficient.”
Founders, investors, marketers and job-seekers alike will find more than 1,200 startups exhibiting in Startup Alley. That’s prime real estate for discovering a new partner, finding a job, engaging in creative networking or possibly even finding a unicorn-in-the-rough. Regardless of your motives, the depth and breadth of technology and talent on display is worth your serious time and attention.
On top of all that, Disrupt SF 2018 offers more than 40 presentations from world-class speakers and rising stars, interactive workshops and Q&A Sessions, our Virtual Hackathon and the always-raucous TechCrunch After Party.
