We’re T-minus five and counting, startup fans — counting the days you have left to save up to $300 on passes to Disrupt 2020. The early-bird clock stops ticking on July 31 precisely at 11:59 p.m. PT. Be a savvy saver. Beat the clock, buy your pass and keep that extra cash in your wallet.
Disrupt 2020 runs from September 14-18 giving you five magnificent days to meet attendees from around the world, explore new technologies, discover the latest trends, expand your startup knowledge and connect with the people who can help your business grow.
Let’s talk about two of the main features of Disrupt 2020 — Digital Startup Alley and the Startup Battlefield. Head on over to Digital Startup Alley and discover hundreds of pre-series A startups — including the TC Top Picks, a cadre of outstanding startups selected by discerning TechCrunch editors — exhibiting their latest tech products, platforms and services. Schedule video meetings to watch product demos, talk with founders, discover opportunities for collaboration, investment or employment.
And CrunchMatch, our AI-powered networking platform, makes it easier than ever to find the people and startups that align with your goals and interests — or for those folks to find you. Fill out a few quick questions and get ready for efficient networking done right.
“The CrunchMatch networking platform, which is basically speed-dating for techies, was very helpful. I scheduled at least 10 short, precise meetings. I learned about startups in stealth mode, what big corporations were up to — things not yet picked up by the press. It was great, and I followed up on three or four of those connections.” — Jens Lehmann, technical lead and product manager, SAP.
Don’t miss the gem of every Disrupt event — the Startup Battlefield pitch competition. Early-stage startups from around the world applied, and only a small cadre met TechCrunch editors’ exacting standards. They’ll have just six minutes deliver their best pitch and demo to a tough panel of expert judges.
What’s at stake? The coveted Disrupt Cup, massive exposure to global media and investors and — drumroll please — $100,000 in equity-free cash. Who knows, you just might witness future tech giants launching on a world stage.
We haven’t even touched on the dozens of speakers, panel discussions and breakout sessions you can enjoy across the Disrupt stages — and we’re announcing more speakers every week.
