Disrupt SF includes Hackathon followed by panels of speakers, one-on-one chats with TechCrunch writers and editors, special guest speakers and judges, VCs and entrepreneurs on the most important topics today in tech.
The agenda for today is packed with Ben Horowitz , Jack Dorsey and Reid Hoffman — all sharing their experiences and expertise in navigating through the ups and downs of the startup world.
The Startup Battlefield presentations are held in the afternoons. Final presentations will be held today, the last day of Disrupt, September 12. More than 30 companies chosen from hundreds of applicants show off their products on the Disrupt stage before a live and online audience — in front of a panel of seasoned judges.
Only one Battlefield contender will take home a $50,000 check and the coveted Disrupt Cup.
Updated: The TechCrunch Battlefield winner is YourMechanic.com, a Ycombinator alum. YourMechanic dispatches professional mechanics to fix your car at your home or at your work.
