TechCrunch Disrupt 2013

TechCrunch Disrupt SF is fast approaching! Be sure to register for our seventh annual conference to witness the launch of a new group of remarkable startups and hear fresh insights from innovative entrepreneurs within the technology world.

Disrupt is widely known for its influential speaking lineup, and this year is no different. Our first set of confirmed speakers includes:
Disrupt will kick off with the ever-popular Hackathon, an international hackers and developers event that hacks a product within 24 hours. Selected winners have the opportunity to present their product on the Disrupt stage (don't forget your energy drinks and nerf guns).

At the core of the Disrupt conference is Startup Battlefield, where select companies launch live before a panel of expert judges. Six companies advance to the final round, hoping to travel home with an extra $50,000 in their pockets as well as the highly prized Disrupt Cup.

With previous years' winners and finalists including Mint.com, Yammer and Dropbox, Battlefield candidates have high-profile competitions waiting for them in store. Don't wait any longer, jump into the battle and apply now!

Interested in participating in other ways at Disrupt? Check out Startup Alley, where early-stage companies show off their groundbreaking talent and technology. Attendees select an "Audience Choice Winner" to compete on stage as part of Battlefield. E-mail startupalley@techcrunch.com with any questions.

We hope to see you there! Stay tuned for more updates.
