At Disrupt NYC, we’re all about startups. We’ve culled two dozen of the hottest startups from over 500 applicants to launch at the event (which starts May 23, get tickets here). We are also bringing startups well on their way to disrupting existing markets onstage to share their experiences.
Two sessions I am particularly excited about will bring the founders of Airbnb, Uber, and Quora to Disrupt NYC. Quora founder Charlie Cheever will be interviewed by Hunch founder Chris Dixon in a live session of his TCTV show Founder Stories. Quora, which was founded by Facebook expats Cheever and Adam D’Angelo, takes a unique social approach to Q&A and general knowledge discovery. Cheever will talk about their approach to designing their product, fostering a community that can provide the best answers on the Web, and how Quora plans to expand to new areas of knowledge and expertise.
