Watch The Disrupt Live Stream Right Here!

TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2014 is officially underway, and the day could not be packed with more excitement.

Not only do we have a Startup Alley filled to the brim with up-and-coming companies, but we will today be joined by Fred Wilson from Union Square Ventures, Yancey Strickler from Kickstarter, Shane Smith from Vice Media, and Brendan Iribe from Oculus VR. And those are just but a few of the tech celebs who will grace our stage this morning.

And then, the real show begins in the form of the Startup Battlefield. Our companies will have exactly six minutes to pitch their company to a panel of incredible judges, all for the chance to take home the Disrupt Cup, $50k, and eternal glory.

We’ll be bringing you live coverage of the show throughout the next few days, so stay tuned as the madness begins.
