Where Great Products Are Born in 24 Hours
TechCrunch has been uncovering some of the best tech creators and programmers through Disrupt Hackathons with some products seeing great success beyond the event, like GroupMe which was created overnight and ultimately acquired by Skype for $80M.
This year, we are hosting the hackathon simultaneously with the Disrupt Berlin conference and inviting hundreds of people from around the world to participate in our Hackathon to show us how they would solve various challenges through the creative production and application of technology. And true to TechCrunch form, we will have plenty of sponsored prizes, including a $5,000 grand prize for the top hack team.
