"startup showcase" entries
Get your new design product or prototype in front of industry movers and shakers at the O’Reilly Design Conference.
We’re seeking design startups that want to pitch judges and attendees — a broad selection of venture capitalists, leaders, and innovators from the investment and design communities. Successful applicants will receive free space in the exhibit hall at the Design Conference. Onsite, a panel of judges will vote for the best in show — winners will be announced on the keynote stage and will be featured in a post on oreilly.com.
Startup requirements include:
- Must be early stage, under three years.
- Your product should not yet be launched but within view of shipping an early version, or you may bring a fairly polished prototype (you can’t show up with a laptop displaying a 3D rendering).
- Your startup must be pre-Series A.
- Your product must be scalable, repeatable — i.e., not a consultancy.
