Last year’s Disrupt SF — TechCrunch’s largest ever — was epic by any measure, and we’re hard at work to make this year even better. Be on the lookout for more details in the coming weeks and months, but here’s a taste of what you can expect.
Startup Battlefield, the world-renowned startup competition, returns — and so does $100,000 in prize money for one extraordinary early-stage startup. Last year, Forethought took home $100K. Will your startup be the next? Keep your eyes on the site for your chance to apply and compete for the cash, the coveted Disrupt Cup and a ton of media and investor attention.
The Startup Alley exhibit hall — the heart and soul of Disrupt — will feature hundreds of early-stage startups demonstrating innovative tech and talent. Exhibiting startups cross a wide range of technologies, with a special focus on these tracks: Artificial Intelligence, Augmented/Virtual Reality, Blockchain, Biotech/Healthtech, Fintech, Gaming, Investor Topics, Justice/Diversity, Mobility, Privacy/Security, E-commerce/Retail and Robotics.
You’ll also find the hand-selected TC Top Picks camped out in the Alley. Do you have what it takes to be a TC Top Pick? Watch the site for your chance to apply. Here’s another reason to stay tuned; we’re planning to give away free Startup Alley exhibitor packages through our Top Picks program.
The Hack is back. That’s right, the TechCrunch on-site Hackathon returns to run simultaneously alongside Disrupt SF 2019. Hundreds of developers, engineers, students, marketers and makers form teams and spend the first two days of Disrupt coding and hacking their way to a new software product. Cash prizes will be awarded for the best overall hack, and there will be plenty of other sponsored hack contests, cash prizes, swag — and coffee. Lots and lots of coffee.
There’s your taste of Disrupt SF 2019. Be sure to save the date — October 2-4 at Moscone North — and sign up for our mailing list. That one simple act will trim $500 off the price of your exhibit pass when registration opens. It’s the easiest bundle you’ll ever save.
