New Yorkers Will Not Be Shown Up In Their Own Town

Disrupting all kinds of things up in here.
 New Yorkers Will Not Be Shown Up In Their Own Town


TechCrunch has released the latest batch of speakers for Disrupt NY, and the locals are making a pretty good showing. The lineup includes some stars:

  • betaworks CEO John Borthwick
  • Birchbox cofounder Katia Beauchamp
  • Warby Parker CEO Neil Blumenthal
  • Rent The Runway CEO Jennifer Hyman
  • Gilt Groupe Founder and CSO Alexis Maybank
  • ZocDoc Founder and CEO Cyrus Massoumi
  • ff Venture Capital partner John Frankel


If we might flashback for a moment, Betabeat attended last year’s afterparty and found at least one denizen of the West Coast wistfully wishing for more dancing and fewer pitches. Perhaps this crowd will be better equipped to let the good times roll?
