We’ve got details regarding the upcoming TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon you’ll want to hear. You wouldn’t want to miss out on one of the greatest all-night hacking events on the planet, would you?
The Disrupt Hackathon is the all-weekend event that kicks off TechCrunch Disrupt. Starting on Saturday, September 6th at 12:30pm, hackers will have 24-hours(ish) to build a working concept, bringing it from soup to nuts to the stage. Following an all-night programming extravaganza, teams will be given exactly one minute to present their working concept in a crowded auditorium in front of the industry’s elite. In addition, to help get you up and running on the latest and greatest in tech, we’re putting together some amazing API workshops.
If you’re on the fence, here are some great reasons you should toss your hat into the ring:
- Exposure. You’ve got our attention for precisely one minute. Show us what you’ve got.
- Time. Been waiting to build something? Now’s your chance. We’ll bring the food & Red Bull.
- Nerds. Lots of them. Mix and mingle and find your next start-up partners, VCs, and more.

The Elephant in the Room
Traditionally, we’ve offered free tickets to Disrupt for competitors. This year, we’ll continue that tradition, but with a twist: Our judges will rate all presentations, and only the top 75 teams will receive tickets.
That’s all we’ve got for now. For up-to-the-date news on all things Disrupt, follow @techcrunch on Twitter.
