TechCrunch Disrupt starts in a few days – TechCrunch


The final countdown to TechCrunch Disrupt 2021 is on, and we couldn’t be more excited to start this party. In a few days, from September 21 to 23, we are shining a light on people who envision the future and push the boundaries of what exists to create what will be.

It might sound very wrong, but when you talk about biotechnology, synthetic DNA, and space entrepreneurs, can we make room for a little poetic license, amirite?

Here’s the deal: TC Disrupt 2021 is full of experts, events, tips and opportunities. If you want to be part of it, buy a pass before Monday for under $ 100.

You know the big marquee events, don’t you? Iconic founders on the main stage – like Duo Lingo CEO Luis von Ahn and celebrity entrepreneur Seth Rogen. Always a huge draw, Startup Battlefield features 20 of the best early stage founders fighting for $ 100,000.

This is all great (not-so-humble bragging), but we want to make sure you’re on top of some of the other disruptive events that can help you grow your business – and have fun while you’re at it. Ready? Let’s get started.

Start your networking at our 30 minutes Welcome sessions Monday September 21, the day before the official start of Disrupt. Choose from a series of 10 sessions – each lasting 30 minutes, each with a specific demographic goal – scheduled on our CrunchMatch platform between 12:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. (PT).

Download your Disrupt the passport card, complete a row of five experiences at Disrupt – meet a sponsor, attend a breakout session, and more. – and submit your card with proof of participation for a chance to win one of three attractive prizes.

Connect to one of the many Startup Alley Crawls to meet and learn more about the startup founders exhibiting in Startup Alley. Each business category has its own one-hour exploration, and the TechCrunch team will interview selected startups in each category live from the main stage.

Go to one (or all) of the many Feedback sessions on the start-up pitch scheduled over the three days of Disruption. Each Startup Alley exhibitor can present their case to a knowledgeable TC staff member. You can learn a lot by watching other founders pitch and listening to experienced advice. You might just come away with ideas for improving your own elevator pitch. Oh, and check out the presentation titled Craft a pitch deck that can’t be ignored for advice on bulletproof protection for your pitch deck.

Confused About Crypto? Confused on the metaverse? Is PSPC serious? You’ll find sessions covering all of these deep topics – along with over 80 other presentations and breakout sessions spanning all tech industries – in the Disrupt 2021 agenda.

TechCrunch Disrupt 2021 will take place September 21-23, in a few days. Buy your pass, explore events, discover new trends and technologies, and discover opportunities to help you imagine and build your future.
