As East Coast Editor of TechCrunch I don’t get much respect. “What’s out in New York?” they ask. “No start-ups, that’s for sure. Foursquare? Meh. It’s all bankers and boredom.”
I’ll tell you what’s out in New York and along the entire East Coast: some amazing entrepreneurs with some amazing ideas. That’s why I’d like to invite you all to TechCrunch Disrupt. Whether you sign up for the Hackathon, Hardware Alley (my own private nerd hardware-based science fair that I think you’re going to love) or come to all three days of talks, panels, and coolness, we want you there.
You can find out more at the Disrupt event page but the gist is this: the event runs from April 29th – May 1st. We’re running a pre-event 24-hour hackathon for folks who want to get one free ticket (more tickets will be released soon) but, as it stands, you still have the opportunity to pick up an early bird ticket before the price goes up April 11.
There are plenty of ways to get into the event and plenty of reasons to go. You will rub elbows with investors, VCs, and inventors. You’ll see some of luminaries of our industry. You’ll eat great food. You’ll get to talk start-ups in the cool capital of the world (sorry, Palo Alto).
I want you there. Get cracking. Who knows? Maybe next Disrupt we can see you on stage.
