Europe, Come Build With Us! Here Are The Very First Tickets To The Disrupt Europe Hackathon

There will also be a bunch of fantastic prizes from our API sponsors, but well announce those in just a few weeks So, what should you build? Something amazing. Something clever. Something that shows just how crazy talented you and your teammates are. Remember: this is a Hackathon. Our judges wont be looking for the thing with the best potential business model theyre looking for something that makes them stop and say Whoa. Were changing things up a bit this time around. Since its our first big event outside of the US in some time, were keepin the attendee list for this Hackathon a bit smaller than its stateside counterparts. Weve got a newly polished set of rules to keep things fair and to help make sure everyone at the event has a great time and, like all of TechCrunchs upcoming events, our anti-harassment policy is in full effect here. Oh, and just to sweeten the deal a bit more: even if you dont take one of the top three spots or win one of the awesome API sponsor prizes, theres still something great up for grabs. Each of the top 40-or-so teams (with the final number depending on how many teams enter) who present will get two tickets to the entirety of the Disrupt Europe conference, normally valued at nearly $1k each. Why? Because we think youre rad. As long as youre building something, participating in the Hackathon is free.
