PCB Stators Electrify at TechCrunch Disrupt

PCB Stators Electrify at TechCrunch Disrupt

The ECM team travels to San Francisco to present our technology at TechCrunch Disrupt.

Last month ECM PCB Stator Technology travelled to San Francisco to present our technology at TechCrunch Disrupt. TechCrunch Disrupt is a flagship annual event which hosts thousands of the most motivated and ambitious founders, investors and tech builders in the world. Disrupt’s host, TechCrunch, is a revered media site for global tech and startup news.

Held at Moscone Center--right down the street from the Golden Gate Bridge and a trek from Silicon Valley--the three-day affair includes a full stage program of panels and discussions with top founders and VCs, a Startup Battlefield competition, and a main exhibition hall where startups and emerging companies can share their innovative technologies with the ~10,000 annual attendees.

The ECM team was on site at Disrupt 2022 to share and present on our new SaaS approach to electric motors – PrintStator. The team exhibited in the main hall, displaying many real-world examples of motors designed with PrintStator for diverse applications. ECM was also able to produce and share a one-minute video on the TechCrunch mainstage.



TechCrunch Disrupt has played host to the biggest founders in tech: Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook), Mark Benioff (Salesforce), Elon Musk (Tesla), Travis Kalanick (Uber), and Jack Dorsey (Twitter). Startup Battlefield alumni also include winners such as DropBox, Fitbit, and Cloudfare.

This year’s Disrupt mainstage hosted an impressive array of tech CEOs, founders, and VCs. The unofficial headliner was sports legend Serena Williams, who has recently formed her own venture capital fund, Serena Ventures, to invest in early-stage technology startups--now that she has more time off the tennis courts.


ECM was fortunate to share some associational company with Williams, as our video on the future of electric motor design aired to a standing room only audience on the TechCrunch mainstage, right after Serena spoke.


A rapidly electrifying world will require over one-billion specialized and sustainably produced electric motors annually. PCBStator tech and ECM’s PrintStator design software can enable the world to meet this demand.


Overall, the ECM team received a huge amount of inbound interest for our innovative electric motor technology and PrintStator Design software. The event generated a number of conversations regarding new and unique applications for PCB Stator motors. ECM engineers were also able to meet with a number of local press agents.  TechCrunch’s General Manager, Joey Hinson, and editor-at-large, Mike Butcher, were a few to visit the ECM booth and check out PCB Stators and the future of axial-flux motors.


TechCrunch Disrupt was a great opportunity for the ECM team to bring PCB Stator technology to the west coast and introduce our unique software approach to motor design to thousands of the most motivated and ambitious founders, investors, and tech builders in the world. We look forward to connecting further with the many valuable connections we made in San Francisco.


Printed circuit board stator motors, also known as PCB Stator motors, have gained popularity in recent years due to their unique design benefits and improved performance over conventional copper wound machines.
ECM recently attended the AHR Expo 2023 in Atlanta—one of the largest HVACR shows in the world—where the ECM team presented, exhibited, hosted attendees, and received award recognition for PCB Stator electric motor innovation.
