Asia: the world’s largest continent by area and population; home to more than four billion people and hundreds of spoken languages. It’s no wonder why the most diversified minds on the planet exist in this region. It also explains why the world’s most dynamic and rapidly expanding hardware ecosystems persist on this side of the hemisphere.

Shenzhen, China has become known as the epicenter of the hardware world, commonly referred to as the Hardware Capital of the World, or the Silicon Valley of Hardware. India and Singapore, conventionally known for their development and progress in the software sector, have made great strides in the shift to hardware and systems innovations. Indonesia has, over the years, transformed from an economy that imports hardware manufacturing products into one that produces them. And the list goes on.

Asia Hardware Battle (AHB) will be touring 10 countries and regions all across Asia in search of the next hardware superstar. AHB realizes that hardware’s central role in powering devices, small and large, is often overlooked. AHB now wants to shine the spotlight on entrepreneurs who are doing their best to improve the tech that fuels our daily lives and give them the recognition they deserve.
