The Hackathon has come and gone, and it’s time for the main event. TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2013 begins now.
If you’ve been a fan of Disrupt in the past, you’re in for a huge treat this beautiful April morning. We’ll be live streaming the entire event from start to finish, with today’s live stream starting at 8:45am ET and ending around 6pm each night.
In the morning, we’ll be enjoying fireside chats with the likes of Andreessen Horowitz’s Chris Dixon and Benchmark’s Bill Gurley, along with panels like “Content Makes A Comeback”. Better yet, Jonah Perreti from BuzzFeed will be giving the keynote for the day.
In the afternoon, Battlefield begins. For those of you who are Disrupt virgins, the Startup Battlefield is the shining star of TechCrunch Disrupt.
Thirty-five companies from all over the world are handpicked by TechCrunch staff to launch their products and companies on our stage, direct to the world. They’ll have six minutes to present, followed by six minutes of Q&A with tech star judges like Tracy Chou (Pinterest), John Frankel (ff Venture) and Sam Yagan (okCupid).
We invite you to follow along on the live stream and tweet with us at #TCdisrupt.
