40 companies will launch for the first time (1.0 Track) or launch new products (2.0 Track) and compete for titles like Best Design, Best Technology and Best Overall with 10,000+ attendees making it the largest live audience in technology.

LAUNCH your company on stage for the first time ever.
No screenshots, no press, no social media, no AngelList profile, no nothing! You are hidden and people see your product for the first time on stage. You don’t pre-brief the press, you don’t do a demo day before the Festival. You’re on lockdown!
Companies accepted into 1.0 must have their websites behind a LaunchRock (or equivalent) with no product shots or videos on their site. You may have company name, logo, and a box to collect emails.
Any press or pre-briefs will disqualify you from the competition.
Not sure if you qualify? Check out the FAQ.

Your company has already launched, and now you have a MASSIVELY compelling new product or feature.
You will only be judged on totally new stuff the world has not seen.
The NEW product or feature MUST be significant. Ask yourself these questions:
Will press like GigaOm, New York Times, TechCrunch, etc. want to cover the new product or feature?
Will the audience pull out their iPhones, snap a picture and say, "WOW."
Not sure if you qualify? Check out the FAQ.
You have an ACTIVE kickstarter, indiegogo, tilt, etc. campaign running during the Festival (March 2-4)

Hacking will start the weekend before the Festival (Feb 27-March 1). Five companies will be chosen to present their projects on the main stage. The winner will be eligible for a $100K optional investment from the LAUNCH Fund.
