TechCrunch Disrupt Next Week: Here's The Agenda Of Awesome

TechCrunch Disrupt starts a week from today. In May nearly 2,000 people flocked to New York to see 25 companies launch and an amazing lineup of speakers. Next week the show comes to San Francisco for a nearly sold out three day disruptive technology extravaganza. We’ve just published the agenda for the event here (and below)

Twenty five new startups will battle for a $50,000 cash prize and the (recently defiled) Disrupt Cup. And when those companies aren’t fighting it over over several rounds of demos, we’ll have world class speakers take the stage to talk about what’s next in tech. Sequoia’s Michael Moritz. Kleiner Perkin’s John Doerr. IAC’s Barry Diller. HP’s Todd Bradley. Digg’s Kevin Rose. Google’s Marissa Mayer and Bradley Horowitz. Reid Hoffman, David Sze. Ron Conway. Peter Thiel. Dan Rosensweig. And more. The list goes on and on. The Agenda is here. The full lineup of speakers is here.

You’re also going to see a number of special new product announcements from Google, Microsoft and others.

And oh boy do we have some great parties planned for the evening. in particular Google Ventures and SV Angel are hosting a major party Tuesday evening that will include a performance by, wait for it, MC Hammer and his dancers. Media Temple is hosting a party on Monday evening, and Mail Chimp has their own party on Wednesday.

There will be major news and major networking opportunities at TechCrunch Disrupt. Get your ticket now. Early bird ticket prices are valid for one more day.
