Mark your calendars, startup fans, because TechCrunch is returning — live and in person — to the beautiful City by the Bay to host our flagship event, TechCrunch Disrupt, on October 18–20 at the Moscone West Convention Center followed by an online recap event on October 21.
TC Disrupt is the grande dame of tech conferences for many reasons, and today we’d like to highlight some of the companies that you'll be able to engage with at the event. Every year we’re fortunate to join forces with great companies that are committed to supporting early-stage startups. You'll be able to take advantage of their resources and connections and even take away a chunk of knowledge from real-life case studies and startup educational content. Their participation elevates, engages and supports early-stage founders.
These companies also come to Disrupt to connect and explore opportunities with other companies within the startup ecosystem. They form alliances, forge partnerships, and look for potential investments, and sometimes they become a startup’s new client.
I go to TechCrunch Disrupt to find new and interesting companies, make new business connections and look for startups with investment potential. It’s an opportunity to expand my knowledge and inform my work. — Rachael Wilcox, creative producer, Volvo Cars.
Breakout sessions are a great feature at Disrupt that allow attendees to meet in smaller settings. Xsolla will be presenting "Expand to New Platforms and Take Your Games Direct-to-Consumer," while Mayfield's session "Getting to Yes and What Happens Next: An Unfiltered Chat with a Top VC" is one not to miss. Wells Fargo will also be hosting a breakout session on "How Banks and Fintech Startups Can Effectively Co-Thrive".
And for attendees who want to get even more face-to-face time, roundtables provide a perfect setting for small-group discussions. Mayfield will be hosting a session on "Saving the World: The Playbook for Building Planetary Health Unicorns" and will also be exploring "Why nine out of ten startups fail." Virtual Gurus will be leading a roundtable as well.
What would Disrupt be without a signature satellite party - be on the lookout for an invite from Singapore Global Network to join them for a fun party.
Exhibiting on the show floor are Dolby.io, Justworks, Toptal, JetBrains, JETRO, Kapstan, NeoSoft, Remote Tech Services, Nano Nuclear Energy, Inc, and Remotebase, Dryvebox all of whom you'll be able to connect with.
And what would Disrupt be without a party? Terra.do will be hosting a signature reception at the show.
TechCrunch Disrupt takes place in San Francisco on October 18–20 with an online day on October 21.
