Disrupt NY is right around the corner, and we are delighted to reveal the agenda for the conference, which returns to Manhattan this year. Tech luminaries, TechCrunch’s famed Startup Battlefield Competition, Disrupt after-parties and, for the first time ever, a live concert are on tap, and at the end of it all, one startup will take home $50,000 and the Disrupt Cup.

Derek Jeter and Jaymee Messler of The Players Tribune will discuss the future of the site and sports media. Facebook’s Fidji Simo will talk about how video leads the site’s content creation and what comes next. We have AngelList founder, Naval Ravikant, discussing changes in how investing is done. And author, famed World Chess Champion and political enthusiast Garry Kasparov will talk about his new book, “Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human Creativity Begins.”

Incubus guitarist Michael Einziger is set to close the show on Wednesday, May 17th with a special musical presentation, featuring Pharrell Williams and Incubus, that will demonstrate the technology developed by his startup, MIXhalo. We’ll hear about what exciting things Instagram’s head of product, Kevin Weil, has in store for us and we’ll hear from the co-founder of Campaign Zero, Brittany Packnett, about how data is used in social movements. And, of course, there are 20 amazing young companies in Startup Battlefield that will compete to win the Disrupt Cup and $50,000.

So join us at Pier 36 for our inaugural Disrupt at the venue. You can buy tickets here, sign up your startup to exhibit here or participate in our Hackathon for a chance to win free tickets.
