I am co-Founder of www.Hatchedit.com, a free social network for families that officially launched in January 2012.  Running a New Jersey-based tech startup with a bootstrapped budget often means facing difficult decisions regarding where and how to market our product.  One such decision was whether or not to invest in an appearance at TechCrunch’s Disrupt NY Conference held earlier this month.

Because we are hoping to raise funding within the next 12 months TC Disrupt was one of the best options for announcing our existence to the tech and VC community.  As a Startup Alley Exhibitor we pitched to attendees on Day 1 and were given passes to attend the panels and presentations on Day 2 and Day 3.

Overall, the experience was overwhelmingly positive, and we consider it an investment with an excellent return.  We were lucky enough to be interviewed for TC tv, which has resulted in an uptick in subscriptions, and we also received positive feedback from attendees.  In addition to making some (hopefully) valuable connections, we also gained some insights as to what works best for presenting to a crowd of peers and investors.
