We’re hard at work planning an outstanding agenda of discussions, panels, workshops and demos. Disrupt Berlin always features some of the most influential tech founders, investors, technologists and makers working today. People like Ayden COO, Pieter Van Der Does, Anne Boden (CEO of Starling Bank), Julie Hansen (U.S. CEO of Babbel) and Jamie Bourke (founder of Outlier Ventures) — all of whom graced the stage at Disrupt Berlin 2018.
We’ll announce all kinds of great events and compelling speakers in the coming weeks and months. But for now, take a quick look at what you can expect at Disrupt Berlin 2019.
We have to begin with the most anticipated event at any Disrupt: the Startup Battlefield. This epic pitch-off has launched hundreds of early-stage startups to the world, including the likes of Vurb, Dropbox, Mint, Yammer and many more. The champion takes home $50,000 cash — last year, it was Legacy. This year, it might be your startup. We’ll have more info in the coming weeks on how you can apply to compete, so keep checking back.
TechCrunch’s famed exhibition floor, Startup Alley, will be home to hundreds of outstanding pre-Series A companies showcasing their best tech products, services, platforms and talent. It’s networking nirvana that practically pulses with innovation and opportunity.
Startup Alley is also home to the TC Top Picks. TechCrunch editors curate and hand-pick this cadre of exceptional startups that get to exhibit at the show for free. We’ll have more information soon about the different ways you can exhibit in Startup Alley — including how you can apply to the TC Top Picks program.
Disrupt Berlin 2019 takes place on 11-12 December. Come bask in all the inspiration, community, connection and opportunity the European startup scene has to offer. And sign up for our mailing list to save an extra €200 off of super-early-bird pricing. Heiliger strohsack!
