Last week was a whirlwind. The TechCrunch Disrupt Startup Battlefield began with thirty innovative and broad-ranging startups and ended with the sixteen of us Layer folk standing on stage accepting the Disrupt cup.

The competition was fierce and the judges were among the most skilled investors in tech. Needless to say, we couldn’t be more excited to be awarded this honor, following in the footsteps of companies like and Yammer.

We’re thankful to TechCrunch and the other startups. But our biggest thanks goes to you, the developers who’ve enthusiastically applied for our beta and shown us the kind of support that serves to confirm we’re doing the right thing. We’ll share a bit more about the response we’ve seen here on this blog this week. The Internet needs Layer and we can’t wait to see what you build with it.
