Are there tickets for journalists?

Journalist tickets are intended for journalists and editorial members of the press. We have a limited number of passes available, and therefore prioritize outlets with a significant following and journalists who show a track record of writing about startups, technology, or venture capital.

Freelancers, podcasters, bloggers, and other individual contributors are also welcome to apply but will be screened more thoroughly for relevance.

Communications and PR professionals and non-editorial employees of media companies are kindly advised to purchase an Attendee Pass.
