Hey makers, tinkerers, and inventors -- have you entered our Insert Coin: New Challengers contest yet? Seriously, you could win $20,000 at Expand this March, a review on Engadget, and a nice promotional boost before you begin a crowdfunding campaign. What are you waiting for?
We implore you to help us spread the word, so we can get the very best projects up on our stage for you (yes, you!) to vote on for a chance to win 20 grand. If you know anyone with a cool project in the works, or a friendly local makerspace, college campus or startup accelerator/incubator whose members might want money and exposure, please send them our way! We really want to give new inventors an extra boost on the road to success.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, February 8.
If you don't qualify for our Insert Coin contest but still want to get your sweet product in front of the eyes of the Expand audience of early adopters and tech enthusiasts, we have very affordable sponsorship opportunities in the Indie Corner section of our exhibition hall. You can sign up for a table right here, and please give us a shout at sponsors [at] engadget [dot] com with any questions about getting onto our show floor.
