TechCrunch Disrupt New York is fundamentally mind-blowing

Tech is now part of how we communicate, consume data, and do everyday tasks.

There are still ways to “live off of the grid”. However, those wishing to be active in global trends needs to have their fingers on the digital pulse.

In that regard, Disrupt features opportunities such as the epic Startup Battlefield.

This pitch competition pits the elite of bright ideas against each other for a prize of $50K (£39K). Winners will also get their hands on the ultimate symbol of TechCrunch triumph, the Disrupt Cup.

Additionally, Startup Alley and Hardware Alley are where startups exhibit, and the stands change daily.

Furthermore, startups can meet their ideal investors through CrunchMatch. This set up has helped launch the next Big Thing in the past.

Disrupt runs in New York from May 15-17th.
