Turning an idea into a market-ready solution/product is often a complex process. Through the Idea Lab incubator and the ISHOW accelerator, ASME provides the support, resources, guidance, and training innovators need to successfully scale hardware-led social innovations to market and into the hands of the people who need them.
From instilling human-centered and sustainable design practices early in the design process to establishing field testing strategies,
From the Bill of Materials analysis to refining the Design for Manufacturing specifications,
From navigating the supply chain to optimizing the value chain,
Hardware is Hard!
ASME is building the capacities of next generation innovators at every step of the tech development process.
Achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will require all hands on deck. With a mission to advance engineering for the benefit of humanity, ASME is a well positioned partner to help achieve the SDGs.
Taking a physical product that solves pressing social and environmental challenges requires a sustainable business model and training across technical, business, and social dimensions.
With a talent pool of over 90,000 members worldwide across diverse disciplines, ASME has brought technical due diligence and thought leadership to the hardware innovation ecosystem since the 2015 launch of the ISHOW accelerator.
Our expert network consists of engineers, designers, manufacturers, and supply chain experts with a deep understanding of emerging markets and navigating the complexities of product development.
For almost a decade, ASME has been scaling impactful social innovations to vulnerable populations worldwide.
Hardware-led social innovation is in our DNA!
