MISUMI USA to Co-Sponsor 2012 ASME IShow, the Annual Showcase for Student Engineers

MISUMI USA, Inc., is pleased to announce that it will partner with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers as a sponsor of the 2012 ASME Innovation Showcase (IShow). Held annually, the highly popular IShow competition provides entrepreneurial teams of college students with a platform to compete for seed money to advance their efforts to further develop, package and market their innovative products or technologies.

Next year’s IShow is scheduled for Saturday, June 2, 2012 at the Hilton Montreal Bonaventure in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The collegiate teams will be judged by a panel of successful innovators, industry experts, venture capitalists, and intellectual property specialists. In addition to presenting an innovative product or technology, students must also demonstrate that they have formulated a sustainable business model. Entries for the 2012 competition are being accepted until January 13, 2012.

“We are excited to be working with the ASME in sponsoring the 2012 ISHOW,” states Andy Sklierenko, MISUMI USA Product Manager - Motion. “This sponsorship reflects MISUMI’s commitment to proactively encouraging future generations of creative product design engineers. We recently launched our 2011/12 University Engineering Program, which provides engineering students and their professors with our comprehensive product catalog, as well as access to our engineering blogs and online library of technical webinars. In addition, our experienced engineers stand ready to provide counsel on the uses and diverse applications of configurable components.” More information and nomination forms for MISUMI’s University Engineering program can be found at: www.Misumiusa.com/MisumiU.aspx

Sklierenko adds: “Another advantage for engineering students is MISUMI’s comprehensive selection of mechanical components and a unique business model, with affordable pricing, fast delivery time and no minimum order quantities, which allows them to experiment and rapidly create prototypes to advance their research.”

As an additional incentive for student participation in MISUMI’s University Engineering Program, the company is holding a special iPad Promotion through June 28th, 2012. Students and professors who register and are accepted into the program will be automatically entered into a drawing to win one of three (3) Apple iPad 2 tablets. The first drawing will be on December 19th, 2011.
