Hardware Hackers: I Want To See Your Battlefield Applications

The past few Disrupts have been amazing for fans of hardware. From Lock8 to Monsieur, we’ve had some amazing startups appearing on stage alongside the software makers of the world and it’s clear that hardware is where it’s at.

That’s why I need you to submit your hardware project to Disrupt. It’s a great platform, a great way to grab attention, and a great way to jumpstart crowdfunding. Who knows? You might even meet the VC of your dreams.

Read on to find out how to make it onto our big stage for the really big show. I’d love to see you in San Francisco or London!

Applications are now open through June 16th! Apply here.

You can find more details at the event pages for Disrupt SF and Disrupt Europe.

Criteria to Participate:

1. TechCrunch is open to all types of companies, from developer tools to hardware devices, core computing technology to mobile ecommerce apps. We even occasionally 3D print makeup.

2. We give heavy preference to companies that launch for the first time to the public and press at TechCrunch Disrupt. We consider new products from existing companies to be significant. Companies that have presented at other public launch events are not eligible for Startup Battlefield.

3. The competition will take place in San Francisco and London, but startups from around the globe are welcome to submit their startups for consideration.

4. Startups may apply to either or both Disrupt SF or Disrupt Europe but they may participate in only one.

Note: All Submissions are confidential unless otherwise permitted by applicants.

We review applications on a rolling basis, so it’s to your advantage to submit as soon as you are ready. Due to strong demand, we are unable to review applications more than once, so please do not submit a draft application before you are ready for final consideration. We are also unable to provide feedback on individual applications.

If you’re choosing between launch platforms and need an early decision, please apply and email us at battlefield@beta.techcrunch.com and we’ll priority review your application.
