How to become a speaker at TechCrunch Disrupt
If you’re a trendsetting, game-changing startup founder, VC or industry expert, apply to speak at Disrupt and share your knowledge with founders, builders and entrepreneurs from across the startup spectrum.
In the application, you’ll submit a title and description for your topic, and you’ll select one of these two presentation formats.
Breakout session: Up to two people (including a moderator) lead a 30-minute presentation followed by a 20-minute Q&A from an audience of up to 100 attendees. You’ll be able to display a presentation and have limited AV capabilities. You’ll present one breakout during Disrupt.
Roundtable discussion: One person leads a 30-minute interactive conversation for an audience of up to 25 attendees. There is no presentation or AV — it’s all about organic conversation. You may potentially repeat this roundtable twice during Disrupt.
The Audience Choice application deadline is April 21, and we will notify the finalists by no later than April 27. Audience Choice Voting takes place May 1–12. We’ll post the selected topics, descriptions and speakers online. TechCrunch readers — and your followers — will vote for the sessions they would like to see at the event.
We’ll notify the winners — who will present live at Disrupt — by May 15!
