Watch Kid 'Faint' After Stephen Curry Surprises Basketball Campers

TechCrunch announced today that two-time NBA MVP and Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry will be speaking onstage for the first time ever at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco on Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 5:30 p.m. PT, where he'll talk about his roles as a tech startup investor, philanthropist and athlete.

In addition to having the most three-pointers in a season and leading the Warriors to the finals in back-to-back seasons, Curry has a window on the startup world through his role in Slyce, a content management platform that empowers brands to leverage talent through content distribution and analytics.

"TechCrunch is thrilled to welcome Steph Curry to the Disrupt Stage in San Francisco this September," said Ned Desmond, TechCrunch COO. "In addition to his record-breaking performance on the court, where he supports Nothing But Nets, Curry is also disrupting the tech industry by investing and involving himself with startups like Slyce."

TechCrunch and Curry are partnering at Disrupt to support a cause that fights one of the oldest and deadliest diseases: malaria, a disease which claims the life of a child every two minutes. The campaign raises awareness, funds, and voices to protect families most vulnerable from this preventable disease. Over the last four years, for every three-pointer Curry made he donated three life-saving bed nets.

"I am excited to be able to share the impactful work of Nothing But Nets with the TechCrunch Disrupt attendees," said Curry. "Having the opportunity to continue to raise awareness and funds for the cause with such a creative and innovative audience is incredibly important to finding a solution to malaria."

Directly following his onstage appearance at TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco, Curry will help conduct an intimate onsite fundraising event. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet Curry, get a photo with the NBA MVP and help fight the scourge of malaria in Africa.

The intimate reception will include a 15 minute Q&A moderated by sports journalist Rick Reilly who wrote the Sports Illustrated column that launched Nothing But Nets 10 years ago. All proceeds from the event will directly benefit Nothing But Nets, and donations are tax-deductible. Attendance is limited to 50 and tickets can be purchased at www.nothingbutnets.net/techcrunchdisrupt.
