Event Home

Welcome to Hardware Battlefield, the premiere launch competition by TechCrunch. Over the next several weeks, hopeful founders will give their young, unseen hardware companies the opportunity to launch at consumer electronics’ biggest event: CES. Up for grabs is a $50,000 prize, the first ever Hardware Battlefield trophy, a wealth of press exposure and new open doors.

We’ll be running three straight days of exciting presentations live from the CES parking lot. You can watch the event – and all of our live coverage of CES 2014 – live on our special live coverage page and, if you’re in Las Vegas, you’re invited to visit us at our tent out on the LVCC parking lot. You don’t need a show pass to watch the proceedings in the tent and we’ll have giveaways, interviews, and other fun stuff all day.
