It’s been a while guys, but I’m back in the web again!!

I was missing writing for AndesBeat…

You guys know…all the eyes of tech, entrepreneurship, startup scene blablabla are looking at NYC for TechCrunch Disrupt 2012.

So what is TCD2012?! I really have no damn clue… I knew it was supposed to be a great event, lot’s of startups, VC’s walking around, bloggers, geeks, freaks, models also 1313… but I’ve never had the chance to attend to one of these events.

But what better than flying to the “city that never sleeps” and being part of this event representing AndesBeat to understand a little bit more about this thing???

Right now I am sitting here….look…

…good spot huh? 3rd row jejeje Media Pass mode ON.

I know this post is running late. My bad :D!

This post should have been published by Monday… but you know, I’m honest… TC Disrupt Launch Party sponsored by GETAROUND was gooooood! Great people, great music and some blue shots (thanks Karina) were the perfect ingredients to change the Tech/geeky side for the Nixter’s experience hahaha.

Now let’s get serious.

There’s a great vibe in here…

Last Monday we enjoyed great talks Ft. Fred Wilson (Union Square ventures) .

First you build a product, then you build a business, then you build the company.


We’re missing girls right?! Yup!! This time we have few girl-trepreneurs!!

Related to Fashion business (L) and the music biz also!!

Did I mention that MC Hammer is part of the Jury? haha epic!

Names like Jason Goldberg (Fab), David Tisch (TechStars), Tom Katis(Voxer), David Karp(Tumblr) were also part of some great talks… and yes! I think in 4 out of 5 they talked about FB Stocks… who gives a sh·$? (Nasdaq -6% oops!)


But hey! We all know this guys, right?!

The real spotlight is under over 100 startups at “Startup Alley” and about 30 other ones fighting at “Startup Battlefield”

I’ll get back to the hottest startups to get some interviews and also explain to you guys what are the “Startup Alley” and “Battlefield” competition.

This was just an intro, the real deal is coming tonight.

And for the ones asking “Is it a good place to launch my startup”? Wait for the next post…

Let me know if I forget to answer that question!


See you guys later.

Success, fuck luck!
