Design Startup Showcase: Call for proposals
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. Your product does not need to be a design product or a product for designers explicitly, but we expect design to be embedded in your company’s DNA.
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.
Our stellar review panel includes John Maeda of Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield and Byers; Irene Au of Khosla Ventures; Enrique Allen of Designer Fund; and many others you will recognize. Step up and tell us why your startup should be a part of the O’Reilly Design Conference.
