The benefits of exhibiting in Startup Alley at Disrupt Berlin 2018

This reminder goes out to all the early-stage startup founders across Europe and beyond. It won’t be long until thousands of us descend on Germany to attend Disrupt Berlin 2018, which takes place on November 29-30. If you want to make the most of your time there (and why the heck wouldn’t you?), then buy a Startup Alley Exhibitor Package and set up shop in Startup Alley.

Startup Alley lies at the heart of the Disrupt Alley Expo floor, and it’s home to hundreds of early-stage startups showcasing the latest technology products, platforms and services to thousands of attendees, including influential investors and tech titans. Not to mention hundreds of accredited reporters, bloggers and correspondents from around the world — from the likes of Bloomberg, CNBC, Financial Times and Mashable.

Luke Heron, the CEO of, benefitted from that kind of media exposure when his company exhibited in Startup Alley at Disrupt Berlin 2017.

“We got fantastic coverage in Engadget, which was really valuable. Coverage is the life blood of a startup. Cash at the beginning of the start-up journey is difficult to come by, and an article from a credible organization can help push things in the right direction.”

Exhibiting in Startup Alley is also a phenomenal networking opportunity. It offers unfettered access to potential customers, collaborators and future partners, and it generates the kind of inspiration that comes from connecting with creative, like-minded individuals. Here’s how Vlad Larin, co-founder of Zeroqode, described his experience exhibiting in Startup Alley.

“Startup Alley at TechCrunch Disrupt was a massively positive experience. It gave us the chance to show our technology to the world and have meaningful conversations with investors, accelerators, incubators, solo founders and developers.”

A Startup Alley Exhibitor Package sells for €895 + VAT. And for those hard-earned euros, you get a one-day exhibit table, three Disrupt Berlin Founder Passes (if you buy before October 25), access to CrunchMatch (our free investor-to-startup matching platform), access to all Disrupt stages, full use of the Startup Alley Exhibitor lounge and access to the Disrupt press list.

And here’s another really cool possibility. If your startup earns enough combined attendee and TechCrunch editorial votes, you might win a Wild Card slot and compete in Startup Battlefield — our pitch competition with a $50,000 cash prize. Don’t think it could happen? Guess again. At Disrupt NY 2017, RecordGram exhibited in Startup Alley, earned the Wild Card and won the Startup Battlefield competition — sweet!

Disrupt Berlin 2018 goes down on November 29-30. Are you ready to network your startup to the next level? Secure your spot and book your Startup Alley Exhibitor Package today.

Android blatantly copies the iPhone X navigation gestures

Google unveiled some of the new features in the next version of Android at its developer conference. One feature looked particularly familiar. Android P will get new navigation gestures to switch between apps. And it works just like the iPhone X.“As part of Android P, we’re introducing a new system navigation that we’ve been working on for more than a year now,” VP of Android Engineering Dave Burke said. “And the new design makes Android multitasking more approachable and easier to understand.”While Google has probably been working on a new multitasking screen for a year, it’s hard to believe that the company didn’t copy Apple. The iPhone X was unveiled in September 2017.On Android P, the traditional home, back and multitasking buttons are gone. There’s a single pill-shaped button at the center of the screen. If you swipe up from this button, you get a new multitasking view with your most recent apps. You can swipe left and right and select the app you’re looking for.If you swipe up o…
