ASME ISHOWs are global hardware innovation competitions for social entrepreneurs in India, Kenya, and the US. Three times each year, young inventors gather to enter their prototypes into design competitions; the winners have the opportunity to scale them into marketable products.

ISHOW winners solve real-world challenges with world-changing innovations like:

  • A device that harvests water from dry desert air
  • A solar-powered chiller so off-the-grid farmers can get milk cold to market
  • A life-saving ventilator, built for under $20

Each ASME ISHOW brings together eight to ten carefully selected social entrepreneurs, currently up to 30 annually, and provides targeted engineering expertise, seed capital, guidance on how to bring a product to market, and a network through which participants can share their inventions globally.

Thank You!
