SPONSORS – There are many ways for companies to partner with the Hackathon. At Disrupt NY, we’ve had sponsored API platforms for hackers to develop on, as well as several amazing contests, with companies offering cash and in-kind prizes. To learn how you can provide support for the developer community, please contact sponsors@beta.techcrunch.com.

SPECTATORS may attend the Sunday Hackathon Presentation and tickets are available here.

DESIGN TRUST — The Design Trust was formed to provide teams with access to some of New York’s brightest visual and product designers during the hackathon. Now making its third consecutive appearance at the TechCrunch Disrupt NY hackathon, Design Trust offers teams an opportunity to partner with one of their elite designers for consultations at the beginning of their hack as well as help with product execution.

“We’re very selective about the designers who become part of Design Trust,” according to Phoebe Espiritu who combines her experience teaching Entrepreneurship to designers as well as her recruiting experience for TechStars NY HackStars to select and lead the designers for Design Trust. “Fundamentally, we’re looking for designers who know how to ship.”

Apply to join Design Trust
Designers interested in participating in the Design Trust for the April 27-28 hackathon can still apply. Deadline for applications is by midnight (ET) April 24.
