Get ready to create startup magic at TechCrunch Disrupt 2023, taking place on September 19–21 in San Francisco. It’s the startup world’s big tent, a magnet of opportunity and prime networking real estate for founders, operators, builders and investors.
Magic’s been part of our DNA since way back in the day when Box founders Aaron Levie and Dylan Smith met one of their first investors, DFJ, at a party hosted by TechCrunch’s founder, Michael Arrington.
Make magic for less: Buy your Disrupt pass before prices go up on August 11, and you’ll save up to $600.
All the ways to build your network at TechCrunch Disrupt 2023
Flash forward to 2023 and the modern-day Disrupt — where the global startup ecosystem gathers to connect with community and opportunity. It starts with our event app — it can help you find and make genuinely valuable connections. Schedule 1:1 meetings with other driven, focused people who can help you achieve your specific business needs and goals.
We’ll open the app weeks ahead of Disrupt, so you can start scheduling meetings and collecting RSVPs in advance. Not to worry — you can also schedule meetups on the fly at the show. Whether you’re looking for funding, a new job or your new co-founder or investment, the app lets you efficiently and effectively connect with the right people across the tech ecosystem.
Of course, you’ll have plenty of organic, face-to-face opportunities to meet and connect with people in various locations at the show. The expo hall is a great place to start. You’ll find the Startup Battlefield 200 companies exhibiting the incredible tech that made us choose them (out of thousands of applicants) for this elite cohort in the first place.
Check out all the breakout sessions and roundtable discussions. These smaller, expert-led talks focus on a specific topic and offer time for Q&As, conversation and the chance to meet people with similar interests. You never know who you might meet or when a startup spark might strike.
