TechCrunch is bringing one of the largest startup events back to San Francisco and Domain.com will be there to kick-off the action. We’ll be at the TechCrunch Disrupt San Francisco Hackathon September 10 and 11 to help launch new startups.
TechCrunch Disrupt Hacakthons are where groundbreaking startups are born. Attendees are challenged to develop a new product and pitch it to a panel of distinguished judges in under 24 hours. Disrupt Hackathons are high stakes; not only are teams competing to win prizes, but they’re vying for the attention of investors and a spot at the Startup Battlefield later in the week. Notable Disrupt Hackathon alumni includes GroupMe, which was ultimately acquired by Skype for $80 million.
To help teams succeed in their hacking challenge, we’ll be on-site all weekend to answer any questions teams have. To bring projects to life, we’ve paired up with our friends at .CLUB Registry to provide free .CLUB domain names. Hackers will also have access to special web hosting and Domain Privacy offers. And after his hit appearance at Disrupt New York, we’ve invited the .CLUB Superhero to join us in San Francisco. He’ll be paying particular attention to the teams that utilize a .CLUB domain name for their startup. The team that best uses .CLUB will be awarded $5,000 to put towards their startup courtesy of .CLUB Registry and Domain.com.
