Announcing Hardware Battlefield 2019 in Shenzhen

TechCrunch's exclusive hardware-focused startup competition returns in the heartland of hardware, Shenzhen, China as part of TechCrunch’s upcoming TC Shenzhen event this November.

Shenzhen offers an ecosystem like no other to support hardware startups through accelerators, rapid prototyping, and world-class manufacturing. TechCrunch is excited to bring back our TC Hardware Battlefield competition hosted in conjunction with the larger TC Shenzhen show on November 11-12. Hardware Battlefield is part of TechCrunch’s Startup Battlefield series, but with a few small differences. Of course, there is the requirement that participating companies must have a hardware component to their product. That could mean anything from smart socks for diabetics to food testing devices, to malaria diagnostic tools, to e-motorcycles, robotic arms and you name it. Those are just some of the products that founders launched on stage at past Hardware Battlefields.

Around 15 companies will be selected by our editorial team to pitch to top VCs, founders and technologists from around the world. One innovative company will be selected as the Hardware Battlefield winner and will take home a check for $25,000 as well as worldwide acclaim and membership in the Startup Battlefield elite. The entire hardware Battlefield will be captured on video and published on techCrunch.

The Hardware Battlefield will be part of the programming at TechCrunch’s second TC Shenzhen event, which we are producing with TechNode, our partner in China.

Indeed, technology today is limitless in both its capabilities and geographical bounds. Inspired by the power and potential of technology today, we invite you to join us at TechCrunch Shenzhen 2019, which will take place from November 9 to 12 in Shenzhen with the theme: Technology Unbounded. This year, TechCrunch China Summit will be held in Shenzhen again. Not only because Shenzhen is one of China’s most important innovation hubs, but because it is also a platform for the integration and development of global scientific and technological innovation.

At TechCrunch Shenzhen 2019, we will gather top entrepreneurs and companies of each industry together under one roof and focus on trending topics such as 5G, artificial intelligence, the international expansion of companies, and the ecosystem of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area (simply known as the “Greater Bay Area”).
