We’re looking for seasoned startup founders and subject-matter experts to host a roundtable at TechCrunch Early Stage 2024. Our one-day summit, designed for budding startup founders, will take place in Boston, Massachusetts, on April 25, 2024.
Do you have valuable, game-changing advice for aspiring founders at the idea stage or budding founders with an MVP? We discuss nuts-and-bolts information to help them run their business. Yes? Submit your application today – joining is 100% free.
Become an expert in the TechCrunch Early Stage 2024 room
First things first. A TechCrunch roundtable is a 30-minute expert-led session focused on a topic that benefits early-stage startup founders. This is your opportunity to be the expert in the room and lead a presentation designed to help budding founders get started on building a solid foundation for success.
Here’s how it works. Submit an application – including a title and abstract describing your proposed roundtable. The TechCrunch speaker-management team will review all applications and select five finalists to proceed to the Audience Choice voting round.
TechCrunch readers vote on the roundtable they want to see at TC Early Stage. Only one winner – the topic that received the most votes – wins a speaking slot at the conference roundtable.
Note: The topics must be related to the founders at an early stage and fall into one of two tracks: idea or minimum viable product (MVP).
Remember these important dates:
- Application deadline: January 10 at 11:59 pm PT
- Audience Choice finalists announced: January 24th
- Voting time: February 1–15
- Winners announced: February 21
