HACKATHON

New York, Brooklyn Cruise Terminal, May 7-8, 2016

Where Great Products Are Born in 24 Hours

Preceding the Disrupt Conference is Hackathon weekend on May 7-8, where  developers and engineers descend from all over the world to take part in a 24-hour hacking endurance test. Teams join forces to build a new product, present it on the Disrupt stage to a panel of expert judges and an audience of tens of thousands and compete for a variety of prizes, including the chance to win free tickets to the Disrupt Conference. Products created at the Disrupt Hackathon have seen great success beyond the event, like GroupMe which was created overnight and ultimately acquired by Skype for $80M.
