Here’s why you should exhibit in Startup Alley at Disrupt SF 2019

Don’t miss your chance to navigate your early-stage startup through an ocean of opportunity at Disrupt San Francisco 2019, our flagship event that takes place October 2-4. We’re talking about exhibiting in Startup Alley, the entrepreneurial heart and soul of every Disrupt.

Exhibiting in the Alley places your business in the path of more than 10,000 attendees and 400 media outlets. Cash, media coverage and customers are essential elements for early startup success and, whether you’re looking for investors, a profile by an accredited tech journalist or to build relationships with prospective customers, you’ll increase your odds significantly when you show your stuff in Startup Alley.

Last year, exhibitors using CrunchMatch — our attendee networking platform — scheduled more than 1,300 meetings and collectively raised $31 million in the months following Disrupt SF 2018. Not too shabby, right?

You have two ways to score an exhibitor table in Startup Alley. First up, founders of early-stage startups in any tech category can buy a Startup Alley Exhibitor Package. The package includes three Founder passes and one day to exhibit your startup. You also get full access to all three days at DSF ’19 — including the Startup Battlefield competition, speakers, workshops, Q&A Sessions, the complete attendee list via Disrupt Mobile App, CrunchMatch and a bunch more perks.

If you like free (and who doesn’t?), you’re going to love the other way to exhibit in Startup Alley. Apply to participate in our TC Picks program. Important note: To qualify, your startup must fall into one of these tech categories: AI + Machine Learning, Biotech + Healthtech, Blockchain, Fintech, Mobility, Privacy + Security, Retail + E-commerce, Robotics + IoT + Hardware, SaaS and Social Impact + Education.

TechCrunch editors vet each application and hand-pick up to five startups to represent each category. It’s a selective, competitive process, but if you’re chosen you’ll get a free Startup Alley Exhibition Package good for one full day of exhibiting in Startup Alley. You also receive three Founder passes, CrunchMatch, the complete Disrupt SF 2019 press list and invitations to special events at Disrupt SF — plus a boatload of media and investor attention.
