Here’s how you can apply to speak at TechCrunch Disrupt

We’ve barely crossed into spring here in the Northern Hemisphere, but we’re already stoked about autumn or, more specifically, TechCrunch Disrupt. Our annual flagship startup-a-thon returns live and in person on October 18-20 in San Francisco, with an online day October 21.

One thing you can always count on at a TC Disrupt conference is an amazing roster of speakers whose collective expertise spans the entire startup ecosystem. We’re well on our way to an impressive cohort, but we’re just getting started — and that’s where you come in.

Do you have what it takes to speak at TC Disrupt? The call for speaker nominations is officially open for you to throw your hat in the ring. TechCrunch has a limited number of these speaking opportunities available, so if you think you’re a great fit to speak at TC Disrupt — or want to recommend someone else — fill out and submit this application by June 10. We’ll be reviewing the submissions and notifying all applicants by late July.

Plenty of now-famous tech stars spoke at TC Disrupt long before they made the headlines, including Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk and Travis Kalanick, to name just a few. Is this your destiny? Only time will tell, but we encourage trend-setting, game-changing early-stage startup founders and ecosystem experts of every stripe to apply and share their hard-won expertise.

Panels, 1:1 interviews, workshop sessions and roundtable discussions are just part of the TC Disrupt experience that you could be a part of. We have even more exciting new features to share, but those must wait for another day. Right now, it’s time for you to apply to speak at TechCrunch Disrupt on October 18-20 in San Francisco, with an online day on October 21. Show us what you bring to the startup table!
