Hardware Battlefield Applications Close In A Week

Stop procrastinating and fill out your application for Hardware Battlefield. The show is set to be even better than last year with participating startups getting free exhibition space at the 2015 International CES and competing for $50,000 and the coveted Metal Man trophy.

For the first time, TechCrunch has partnered with the CEA to be an official media partner of the tradeshow. This means companies selected to participate in Hardware Battlefield will get even more attention from the press, investors and hardware distributors.

The complete list of rules can be found here, but essentially, if you’re a hardware company looking to launch your first product around CES, we want you to launch on our stage.

But first you have to apply. And you only have a week left. The application deadline is October 30th.

Entry is free and is open to all hardware companies planning to launch (crowdfund or ship) product in a two-week window before or after January 10. We highly encourage launching your product for the first time on our stage so it receives the biggest impact.

Email myself, John Biggs or TechCrunch’s Battlefield editor, Sam O’Keefe with any questions.
