S hortlisted as one of ten finalists from a pool of over 200 quality applications, the Phytoponics team took the Hydrosac™ to Washington D.C. USA for the annual American Society of Mechanical Engineers ISHOW innovation awards, returning home with the $1,000 Fan Favourite Prize.
Directors Adam, James and Luke pitched the Hydrosac™ invention in front of a panel of expert business figures and engineers, impressing them with the innovation the product had to offer.
Managing Director, Adam Dixon said: “It was an honour to be shortlisted by ASME and to win the fan favourite position! Luke, James and I learnt a lot about the process of hardware development and met senior engineering and business executives who helped us plot a strong plan for commercialisation of our Hydrosac™ design.”
This was the team’s first experience of a major competition, and with immediate success, the signs are good for the future.
