Here in Asia, we’re the first to see the sunrise. We’re the continent with the most people and some of the oldest civilizations in human history. Also here is home to some of the most innovative hardware startups in the world. From “Startup Nation” Israel of West Asia to high-tech Japan and Korea of Northeast Asia we can find the most innovative creativity comes out.  From Mainland China to uprising countries of Southeast Asia, we can experience and look forward to the future of the hardware world.

2018 Asia Hardware Battle brings together about 300 business projects and startups from 9 countries and regions, including mainland China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, India and other places. After battling in the cities and undergoing stringent preliminary selection, only 15 teams emerging from these countries and regions will stand to contend for the Ultimate Championship in the final battle in Shanghai in middle of October.
