Meet The Judges Of Hardware Battlefield 2015

We’re excited to announce the all-star investors, founders and makers judging the startups in the second annual Hardware Battlefield. From Martha Stewart, to 50 Cent, to Yves Behar, and many more, we’ve lined up 13 individuals who know what it takes to make a successful product and company.

Over the three days of International Consumer Electronics Show, these judges will work together to narrow down the 14 startups competing in the competition. The winner will get $50,000 and the coveted Metal Man trophy.

This is the second year in a row we’ve held Hardware Battlefield at the International CES. Like the Startup Battlefields held at Disrupt conferences, panels of industry experts and investors will choose a startup to win $50,000 and the Hardware Battlefield Metal Man trophy.

This year however, TechCrunch partnered with the International CES to give exhibition space to startups chosen to participate in Startup Battlefield.

You can watch the competition live at International CES or through a live video stream January 6-8.
