What is Transformers Roadshow?

Transformers Roadshow is a science, technology and innovation competition, hosted by the Islamic Development Bank. It provides a platform to accelerate and amplify the work of innovators and entrepreneurs across the Islamic World. The competition is about finding and supporting new ideas that can help communities build their own healthy and prosperous futures.

Our aim is to identify innovators, scientists and entrepreneurs with ideas that can support one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals, and connect them to those who can pass on the relevant knowledge and support, including funding, new business opportunities or simply strategic advice.
