Treble prides itself on working with some of the tech industry's most innovative and disruptive companies. So, when we got a chance to attend TechCrunch Disrupt 2023, we jumped at it. Billed as “the original startup conference,” TechCrunch Disrupt is one of the year’s best opportunities to get an early look at what early-stage startups and innovative tech companies are doing at the forefront of the industry.

In addition to breakout sessions and world-class speakers, thousands of startups have sought to be part of the Startup Battlefield 200, part of the conference’s showcase. Of those applicants, the top 200 will exhibit for the three-day conference, offering attendees an exciting glimpse into the work of rising leaders in the startup world.

But what are the specific benefits of attending TechCrunch Disrupt? As we head to San Francisco for the show, here are some key aspects our team is looking forward to.

Networking Opportunities

First and foremost, TechCrunch Disrupt would not be the event it is without the people. From founders on the frontlines of cutting-edge, forward-thinking technologies to members of the media covering the latest tech news, attendees at the conference are the lifeblood of the event.

In today's fast-paced and interconnected business landscape, the value of face-to-face interactions and relationship-building cannot be overstated. Especially following the impact of COVID-19 and how the pandemic pushed so many traditional networking experiences online, conferences like TechCrunch Disrupt are all the more important. This event, in particular, offers a powerful way to forge impactful, in-person connections with like-minded peers, industry experts and potential collaborators.

Fostering those relationships could very well lead to new strategies for existing work or new partnerships in the future, and we are looking forward to meeting as many people as we can.

Learning From the Best

The structure of the conference features several different verticals, which each find their home on a particular stage for various days of the conference. Those verticals include artificial intelligence, SaaS, security, sustainability, space and more.

Each stage features vertical-specific discussions, startups and networking events to fine-tune attendees’ experiences.

The AI Stage, for example, is all about the potential of artificial intelligence, including the challenges and ethics of its use. Speakers include experts like Andy Parsons, senior director of the Content Authenticity Initiative at Adobe, and Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud.

And that is just the beginning. Other stages explore industries like FinTech and will explore the evolution of various technologies like blockchain, NFTs and Web 3.0. Speakers for that portion of the program include the co-founder and CEO of Robinhood, Vlad Tenev, and the co-head of innovation economy at JP Morgan, Melissa Smith.

The diverse perspectives and topics that the conference will cover will be fruitful learning experiences for Treble’s team and our client partners.

Innovative, Forward-Thinking Ideas

TechCrunch Disrupt promises to be an exciting and invaluable opportunity for our Treble team and all attendees. With the combined power of the conference programming and the networking opportunities with other people at the conference, we look forward to leaving refreshed with new ways to continue to be ahead of the curve in how we innovate with our clients.

TechCrunch Disrupt is just one of the many ways that we seek to stay at the forefront of the latest in tech and continue to be part of the conversations and circles that are shaping the future of the industry.

With a diverse lineup of speakers, engaging sessions and ample networking opportunities, we expect this conference to be an exceptional opportunity to delve into the latest trends and technologies shaping the ever-evolving tech landscape.
