TechCrunch Disrupt hits New York City May 3-7, and we’re excited to announce the full agenda. The event will span five days and feature industry titans, noted thought leaders and experienced entrepreneurs. General admission tickets and sponsorship packages are still available.

We’ll hear from founders like Hosain Rahman, Sophia Amoruso, Yancey Strickler and Niklas Zennström. Twitter investor Fred Wilson and the entire Lerer Ventures team will tell us what they look for in a founder, as well as what makes New York startup innovation so unique.

We’ll also hear from the founders of Birchbox, Secret and Whisper and will chat with frequent Forbes Midas List venture capitalist Roelof Botha. Astro Teller will give us a peek into Google X, and Comcast CEO Neil Smit will speak to just what is happening as the company’s reach increases through its blockbuster deal with Time Warner Cable. There are a few more surprises to come!

To get things started, Disrupt NY will kick off with die-hard developers and designers participating in the Hackathon. The 24-hour event starts on Saturday May 3 and runs through the night until the teams take the Disrupt stage on Sunday to present their creations.

During the conference, Startup Alley and Hardware Alley will host hundreds of startups. Each day our exhibition hall transforms with new companies to explore. There are still a few spots open. Email [email protected] if you have any questions. Have a hardware product? Join us in the Hardware Alley on Wednesday, and email [email protected] if you have any questions.

And finally, Disrupt NY will conclude with one Startup Battlefield company being awarded the famed Disrupt Cup and the $50,000 prize.

We also encourage students to be a part of Disrupt NY. We have 300 student tickets available, so be sure to grab yours quickly.

Early bird tickets are still available. The price of a general admission ticket jumps $1,000 on April 23rd. There are also spots available for developers and designers looking to participate in the Hackathon. We’d love to see you there. If you’re interested in sponsorship opportunities, please contact our sponsorship team here.

As always, we want to hear from you. Questions? Comments? Email us at [email protected]com. We’ll see you in New York!
