Interrupted rolls out in person on October 18-20 – with the day online on October 21 – in San Francisco. The OG of tech conferences offers plenty of opportunities for students determined to make their mark in the startup world.
Here are some of the great reasons you should interrupt.
Learn the best way to build from experts at all stages of the startup life cycle – from ideation and testing to funding and scaling. Connect with product and UX/UI operators who know how to turn an idea into a prototype and final MVP.
Start networking weeks before the show starts, with the Disrupt Events app. It searches the list of attendees for people who align with your goals (based on the information you provide when you register). It’s a quick, efficient way to schedule meetings, pitch investors, or find the right co-founder or post-grad gig.
Disruption is where founders go to grow. Check out some of the founder-focused sessions taking place on Meczyki.Net Disrupt.
Three Ways to Earn a Free Pass to Disrupt
Enter Student Pitch Contest
The Meczyki.Net Student Pitch Contest (run by Blackstone Launchpad) is industry-agnostic, and we encourage students to apply in any field. While we are excited to review student applications with a working MVP, the eventual winner will be a mix of student-led startups that are product/market-friendly, and at the development stage.
Applying to the contest is a simple, three-step process:
- Record a 60 second video of your pitch.
- Fill out an application and answer a few quick questions about your startup.
- Submit your application and video.
Last date of application is 9th September, Meczyki.Net will review all submitted videos and select 20 finalists. We will notify the finalists on September 18th. Note: This is a video contest only. No one pitches in on the interrupt.
Take advantage of the fun, easy way to participate in a free interruption: apply to volunteer for work exchange. Trade up to 10 hours of your time, and we’ll give you a free general admission pass for all three days of disruption.
Take a behind the scenes look at what it takes to produce a world-class tech conference. See this FAQ for details and requirements that all volunteers need to meet.
