It's time! Startup Battlefield Applications are now open for TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2013. This past September, our Startup Battlefield at Disrupt SF had everything from hardware breakout and Battlefield runner-up Lit Motors to predictive content from Expect Labs and ease-of-use auto maintenance appointments from Battlefield winner YourMechanic. The stage was packed with amazing launches that included delightful dancing robots and futuristic software. Are you ready to launch your company on the biggest startup stage? Tell us about it. Disrupt NY will take place on April 29th through May 1st at our new venue, the Manhattan Center. Last year, UberConference was the breakout star of the New York Battlefield companies and walked away with $50,000, the coveted Disrupt Cup, and more press and headlines than they could have ever imagined. Join the ranks of previous Battlefield companies like Mint, Yammer, Dropbox, Fitbit and more. Apply now for the Disrupt Startup Battlefield. Applications are open until 11:59 p.m. PDT, Monday night, February 25, 2013. Of course it wouldn’t be a Disrupt event without our Hackathon kicking it all off on April 27th – 28th. We hope to have hundreds of hackers from all around the world come join us to code, hack, drink, eat, and create something memorable during the 24-hour time period. Who knows, you might just be as big as these guys. Our Disrupt conference is one of the biggest conferences of the year, and we had an epic lineup this past September in San Francisco. We’re back and ready to do it again. If you’d like to become a part of the Disrupt experience and learn about sponsorship opportunities, please contact our partnership team for more information.
