What is the TechCrunch Hackathon?

Event Introduction

As the most Silicon Valley style and international top-level startups’ event in China, TechCrunch will return in this October. TechNode and TechCrunch will organize this event together, moreover Hackathon will be the preheat part of this huge event.
Hackathon is one of the classic activities of TechCrunch Disrupt, each team will has  24 hours to accomplish the product design and development process. In this time,we will invite some of the Global 500 to join us as our judges, and they will prepare the special awards just for you.

Who can participate

All the people who are interested in technology will be so welcomed to join us, whether you are a geek, a developer, a designer, a students or a startup. You can come here to share your ideas ,broader your views and enjoy this Hack carnival. We hope we can learn numerous innovative ideas from you, even if there is no mature products, no commercial values. Imagination and unconstrained style are both appreciated in this June. Welcome to join us!

The Ownership and the Intellectual Property Right of the products produced during the Hackathon competition belong to their producers completely, and could be used on their own will.
All the participants should sign the Non-Disclosure Agreement for APIs at Hackathon in TechCrunch Shanghai, 2017.
Both individual participants and teams are acceptable. To be noticed, the limit of members for each team is 5.
You should run your product and present it to the public. If you do not finish your presentation, don’t worry! Just try your best.
The jury of Hackathon consists of experts and the delegates from the sponsors. At the end of Hackathon, comprehensively concerning the performance of each team during the whole competition period, we would award the top participants with the grand prix or other special awards, including the Most Innovative Product, the Most Valuable Product, and the Most Completed Product.

Registration Qualification

We suggest that participants had better have 3-5 members on a team. However, if you think you’ve owned sufficient capacity to be both a front-end engineer and a developer, individual participants are also acceptable. Registration information should include division of the work, name list and an introduction of your program.

We agree that it would offer better help if you’ve already have a mature idea before coming to Hackathon. Nevertheless, you are not allowed to bring a semi-finished or finished product to the competition. Besides, if you have a strong will to participate in Hackathon but find it difficult to have partners with you, you could note down in your registration information along with related details, and tell us the role you could play in a team. Then you could directly build your team with other participants who are in favor on the spot. We would patiently and conscientiously assess your registration information, and finalize the list of participants.
