International Hardware Cup competitions are run by partners and have a separate application. Please contact the competition organizer with any questions.

One finalist from each international competition will travel to Pittsburgh for the AlphaLab Gear Hardware Cup Finals events, held in Pittsburgh, PA in May 2019. On Day 1 of the Finals, all international finalists will pitch and have a demo table at the public US finals. On Day 2, all finalists will participate in the AI/Robotics Venture Fair presented by Innovation Works and Carnegie Mellon University.

If you are an organization interested in partnering with AlphaLab Gear to run your own Hardware Cup competition, please contact Leah Simoncelli at
