Work exchange earns you a free pass to TechCrunch Disrupt 2023


Just about one month to go until TechCrunch Disrupt 2023 kicks off in San Francisco on September 19-21. If you don’t have a pass yet, here’s a painless  way to attend — for free. 

Volunteer at TechCrunch Disrupt 2023 for a free, three-day pass

Here’s the (tiny) catch. Simply work 8 hours over the course of Disrupt, and we’ll say thanks as we hand you a free General Admission pass (a $1,250 value). 

When your shift ends, you can take in all the action on the Disrupt Stage, the Builders Stage and our seven new track-specific stages, too. Take a look at the agenda.

Plus, you can attend breakout sessions and roundtable discussions — some of the most popular draws at Disrupt — hit the expo floor to meet and greet the Startup Battlefield 200 companies exhibiting their game-changing tech. And don’t forget about networking. You’ll have time and opportunity to network with prominent people and companies attending the show.

If you’re interested in tech, startups, event planning, marketing — or all of the above — apply to volunteer by September 5. It’s a great way to see what it takes to produce a world-renowned startup event.
