TechCrunch Disrupt New York was a huge success this past May, but we’re not resting on our laurels. We’re planning a few great surprises for our San Francisco event in September — but first, the Startup Battlefield applications are now open.
You saw some of the finalists in action on stage last month. Gtar, the iPhone guitar, has become a cultural sensation and blown through its ambitious Kickstarter campaign. UberConference, which promises to change how conference calls are done, convinced the judges that it has the best shot at building a big, disruptive business. Meanwhile, some of the other members of the Battlefield found themselves the subject of mainstream print media and even Jay Leno’s Tonight Show monologue.
So are you ready to launch your company on the biggest startup launch stage? Tell us about it.
Disrupt SF will be take place on September 10th through the 12th at the San Francisco Design Center Concourse. Last year, Shaker was the breakout star of the San Francisco Battlefield companies and walked away with $50,000, the coveted Disrupt Cup, and more press and headlines than they could have ever imagined. Many Battlefield companies have raised millions of dollars in funding and some have gone on to be acquired by notable companies.
Are you a disruptor? Do you think your company could be the breakout star at this year’s Disrupt SF?
Apply now for the Disrupt Startup Battlefield here. Applications are open until 11:59pm PDT, Monday night, July 9, 2012.
Of course it wouldn’t be a Disrupt event without our Hackathon kicking it all off on September 8th – 9th. We hope to have hundreds of hackers from all around the world come join us to code, hack, drink, eat, and create something memorable in the 24 hour time period. Who knows, you might just be as big as these guys.
Our Disrupt conference is one of the biggest conferences of the year, and we killed it last year in San Francisco. We’re back and ready to do it again.
