Registration for Startup Alley at Disrupt SF is open — get your tickets now!

TECHCRUNCH Attention, startups. The day you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived! We’re stoked to announce that registration is now open for startups looking to display in Startup Alley or Hardware Alley at Disrupt SF 2017. To kick off the festivities, we’re launching a special extra early-bird offer that you’ll definitely want to take advantage of. For a limited time, we’re throwing in an extra Disrupt ticket to startups that purchase tickets in advance, meaning you’ll get three tickets for the price of two. You can get your ticket package here for $1,995. That ticket package gets you one full day of exhibition in either Startup Alley or Hardware Alley, plus three full tickets to the Disrupt conference. But why should you participate in the Alley, you ask? Simply put, the Alley is perhaps the best way to get your startup out there in front of the people who matter in the industry. Startups that displayed in the Alley at Disrupt NY 2016 raised more than $35 million in seed and Series A funding post-Disrupt, with $4 million of that raised in just the first three months, according to Crunchbase. In addition to the possibility of raising some needed funding, Startup Alley companies have the opportunity to win the chance to participate in the illustrious Startup Battlefield competition. On each day of Disrupt, attendees will vote for their favorite Startup Alley...
