What’s the difference between the Founder Pass and the All-Access Pass?

The only difference is that the Founder Pass is reserved only for startup founders. We know that every dollar counts while in the “build” phase of your company, so we created a discounted pass to make sure it’s affordable for any entrepreneur to come get valuable insights from world leaders in tech, and get in front of loads of potential investors and clients.


Are there Press Passes available?

Yes! If you’re a tech journalist or media reporter you can apply for a Press Pass here.


Are tickets refundable?

We have a strict no-refund policy. However, all tickets purchased can be easily transferred to anyone else. All ticketing is processed through Eventbrite, so if you can’t make it for some reason all you have to do is log in to your Eventbrite account and follow these steps:

1. On the Eventbrite dashboard go to ‘Tickets’
