The tech gods and goddesses must adore procrastinators, because we were suddenly compelled to extend our early-bird pricing on passes to Disrupt San Francisco 2018 . It kills us to see folks paying more than necessary, so you now have until August 1 at midnight PST — another full week — to get your tickets and experience all the tech and VC goodness that Disrupt San Francisco 2018 has to offer. Don’t put it off; go buy your tickets today .
Our most ambitious Disrupt event takes place at our new, larger venue, Moscone Center West, on September 5-7. If you haven’t heard, this will be our only Disrupt event in North America this year, and we’ve gone all-out to make these three days special and value-packed.
Startup Battlefield is always frenzied excitement, but this year, we super-sized the stakes. The grand prize? $100,000 in non-equity cash. The competition will be fierce, and we can’t wait to see how it all goes down.
We’ve gone global with a Virtual Hackathon , which features thousands of the world’s best tech-heads, coders, designers and programmers hacking some incredible creations and competing for a $10,000 grand prize. And thanks to our generous sponsors, we have a bunch of amazing hack contests that offer thousands of dollars in cash and prizes.
Every Disrupt offers an incredible list of speakers , and this year may stand out from the rest. We’re particularly excited to have some of the top women in the VC world grace our stage. We’re talking Megan Quinn, a general partner at Spark Capital; Sarah Tavel, Benchmark’s first — and so far, only — female general partner; and Aileen Lee, who coined the term Unicorn and has formed her own company, Cowboy Ventures.
