Be Inspired

Looking for a bit of inspiration? TechCrunch Disrupt 2015 has that in spades, with speakers ranging from Alexandra Chong, the founder of Lulu, Azmat Yusuf, a founder of Citymapper, and Agus Gomez, a co-founder at Wallapop. Want to start your own business? Then these are the people to listen to, and they’re all speaking at TechCrunch Disrupt in London this year. Not only that, but the Hackathon can also be a major source of inspiration! Teams get together and build something awesome overnight.

See Exciting Pitches & Refine Your Own Technique

Participants in the Startup Battlefield will be pitching to a panel of judges - and you can sit in, and judge yourself. See what seems to work and what doesn’t, grab some good ideas for how to pitch, and learn what to avoid.

Pitch & Meet the Right People

If you have something to pitch (an idea, a burgeoning startup, or yourself - hello exciting new employers!) you can find someone to pitch it to here. There are plenty of VCs & other sundry investors walking around and scoping things out, so it’s worth your time if you have a business idea & the confidence to do a bit of chatting.

Network with Potential Co-Founders

Not only are there tons of investors wandering around, there are also plenty of interesting folks who are looking to join a startup at the ground up. You’ve got a great idea for an app, but you’re not so sure how to build an app? Chat with more technically astute people there and see what they have to say! Even if they don’t want to join up with you, they can provide valuable feedback on your ideas.
