Year after year, founders, investors, startups and tech enthusiasts alike fly, Uber, and drone (jk) thousands of miles to witness the most anticipated tech and startup conference of the year - TechCrunch’s Disrupt SF. Eager to see the live demos of the next hottest lifestyle app and VR technology, attendees pour into the convention center early for a full day of interactive workshops, fireside chats and strolling up and down the Startup Alley Expo. It’s three whole days of the tech world coming together. This is TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco.
Disrupt SF 2018 will take place September 5-7 at the Moscone Center West, a huge venue that allows us to host 10,000 attendees this year. With triple the space and four stages of content, this year’s conference will be unlike any other Disrupt in years past. Focusing on fourteen category tracks ranging from healthtech to justice and diversity, the content will challenge what we thought we knew about technology and spark conversations around new ideas.
To make Disrupt SF 2018 as financially accessible as possible, we offer a special discount for college and university students. For just $295, students gain full access to all three days of Disrupt SF through an Innovator Pass. This pass (normally priced at $1995) grants access to everything that makes Disrupt SF the amazing conference it is. The four stages of all-day programming include the Main Stage, the Next Stage, Q+A Sessions and the Showcase Stage. Here is where you’ll find talks with tech elite like Uber’s Dara Khosrowshahi and Bumble’s Whitney Wolfe Herd. Then, there’s Startup Alley, where rows and rows of early-stage startups display their inventions for everyone to see. And because we can’t get enough of startups, students also have the chance to witness our legendary Startup Battlefield, where companies like Dropbox and Mint have competed in a pitch competition for the Disrupt Cup and $50,000 prize.
So why should students attend Disrupt SF? One word: networking. Whether you’re looking for your next summer internship or launching a startup, the people you need to meet to get ahead will be at Disrupt. With our handy-dandy Disrupt Mobile App, you’ll be able to view the entire attendee list and contact them as well. With three days of networking, programming and interactive workshops, you might be worried about missing something. Have no fear, as your Innovator pass allows you to access our library of videos post-Disrupt. And did we mention discounted hotel rooms? Yeah, we got that, too.
