Summer is whipping right along, with Memorial Day and the Summer Solstice already in the rear-view mirror. We’re rounding the corner into the next long holiday weekend here in the U.S., and here at TechCrunch, that can mean just one thing.
It’s time for our July 4th, two-for-one flash sale! Starting today you can buy two tickets to TechCrunch Disrupt for the price of one. It’s a great way to secure serious savings on our three-day flagship event in San Francisco on October 18-20, with an online day on October 21.

What can you expect at Disrupt this year? Tech icons and other high-caliber speakers from across the early-stage startup spectrum are always a given. The official agenda is far from fixed (it’s still early yet), but here are just some of the speakers and topics you’ll find over at the TechCrunch+ stage (you may remember it as the Extra Crunch stage before our rebrand).
The venture market has changed significantly from 2021, and we tackle a tough topic from both sides of the coveted venture coin. Don’t miss these two essential panel discussions:
- How To Raise First Dollars In A More Difficult Market, The Venture Perspective — with Annie Case (Kleiner Perkins) and Sheel Mohnot (Better Tomorrow Ventures).
- How To Raise First Dollars When Investors Are More Cautious, The Founder Perspective — with Amanda DoAmaral (Fiveable), Sara Du (Alloy Automation) and Arman Hezarkhani (Parthean).
The Startup Battlefield pitch competition promises to be even more exciting this year. Why? Because the 20 finalists will be chosen from The Startup Battlefield 200. TechCrunch will hand-pick 200 outstanding early-stage companies and host the cohort (free of charge) at Disrupt. They will be the only startups exhibiting on the show floor for all three days of the show.
Team TechCrunch has the tough (and exciting) job of vetting thousands of applications to find the very best startups to exhibit. Then they’ll winnow that group down and choose 20 remarkable finalists who will take to the main stage and pitch live to a panel of judges, along with the entire Disrupt audience, for a shot at $100,000.
Think you have the right stuff? Applications are open now and close on July 31. Apply to the Startup Battlefield 200 ASAP, because we start rolling out acceptance notices on July 1.
We’ll have more exciting programs to share with you in the run-up to Disrupt. Keep your fingers on the pulse of TechCrunch — sign up for event updates to receive the latest announcements and discounts.
