Announcing The TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2012 Agenda

The third Annual TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco (September 10-12, 2012) is going to be the most awesome Disrupt yet. There were a record number of applications for our Startup Battlefield, which will feature 30 amazing startups competing for the Disrupt Cup and $50,000 prize in front of the sharpest minds in Silicon Valley, including Roelof Botha, Marissa Mayer and Mike Arrington.

Our speaker line-up features the most prominent venture and angel investors, from Disrupt Parter Sequoia’s Botha to Ben Horowitz and Vinod Khosla to John Borthwick and David Lee, as well an unforgettable list of entrepreneurs including Reid Hoffman, Ev Williams and Biz Stone, Marc Benioff, Aaron Levie, and Jessica Alba (you read that right).

If that’s not enough to make you run, not walk to, to Disrupt, there will be hundreds of new companies in StartUp Alley, a raft of awesome after parties, and a chance to be George Zachary’s next apprentice.

We’ve got even more surprises to announce as we count down the days to hearing those catchy Disrupt music tracks. Stay tuned.
