Whether you’re singing “Take This Job and Shove It” while workin’ “9 to 5” or you’re a fledgling startup founder, TechCrunch Early Stage 2023 is the bootstrapping bootcamp designed just for you. The daylong founder-focused summit — on April 20 in Boston, Massachusetts — covers the essential building blocks you need to build a solid foundation for startup success.

TC Early Stage features a mix of panel discussions, workshops and small-group roundtable discussions that provide plenty of time for Q&A. You’ll engage with and learn from successful founders and industry experts across a range of core entrepreneurial skills.
Topics in previous years have included:
- Understanding product-market fit — and how to find it
- Building your brand
- Attracting media attention
- Scaling your customer base
- Funding — from unconventional ways to Series A
This conference is all about you. We call it Early Stage, but that also includes folks who just have an idea they want to grow into a startup. Of our past attendees, 50% were bootstrapping, 65% worked at a startup and 49% were newly minted founders. Wherever you fall on the early-stage continuum, this is where you need to be to take your business to the next level.
TC Early Stage also focuses on networking — crucial for building a startup, and even more so at this stage. Don’t underestimate the reassurance that comes from connecting with a like-minded community and knowing you’re not alone. Plus, you just might meet the perfect co-founder or an engineer who can help you turn your idea into a viable product.
Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what one attendee told us about her experience:
“What you learn at Early Stage is so much better than the random information you find on YouTube. You get to interact with industry experts and ask them specific questions. It’s like a mini bootcamp, and you’re going to walk away with a lot of knowledge.” — Chloe Leaaetoa, founder, Socicraft.
