TechCrunch Disrupt NYC will be here before we know it and we have been working incredibly hard to make it especially amazing this year. This incomparable conference is being held next month, May 21st – 23rd, following our ever popular Hackathon, which is taking place on May 19th through the 20th, where red bull gulpers and pizza eaters will gather together to hack a product within 24 hours.
During the three days of Disrupt NYC, we will launch over two dozen startups in the Startup Battlefield competition, where startups from all over come to battle it out for the ultimate prize of $50,000 and the Disrupt Cup. Winners of past years have included Shaker, Getaround, Qwiki, Soluto and many more.
Disrupt NYC will also bring together the best and smartest people in technology, where we will discuss how the Internet is disrupting industry after industry.
We have already announced many amazing speakers and judges, and will continue to announce more as we get closer to the event. We are incredibly excited to have our very own Michael Arrington back with us this year, along with MG Siegler. Both will be on stage and will be helping judge the Battlefield competition. Who knows what could happen?
This event is going to be fantastic. Last year in New York, we had over 2,000 attendees and had over 500 hackers join us. It’s really an event you do not want to miss.
We have extended Early Bird registration until April 30th. That means you have ten more days to get the best price on Disrupt tickets. We will also have ticket giveaways and more announcements and surprises coming up week after week, so be sure to be on the lookout for those.
We hope to see all of you there. Get your tickets now.
