Formerly named the International Business Ventures (IBV) Enterprise the name Innovative Global Solutions (IGS) came to be in the Fall of 2015 at Michigan Technological University. As IBV projects included a Mobile Clinic, which was implemented in Ghana, as well as an Infant Heart Enunciator. Our first project as the IGS enterprise was a continuation of the IBV ventilator which took first place at Michigan Tech’s 2015 Design Expo. Recently, the team designed a Vaccine Cold Transport Device (VCT) for delivering vaccinations to the developing world. This project received an honorable mention at the 2019 Design Expo and went on to receive third place overall as well as third place for the innovation award at the 2020 Design Expo. In Spring 2023 our Aquaponics team received an honorable mention at the design expo for their aquaponics system that is being implemented in Kenya to assist the community in creating a sustainable food source!
Innovative Global Solutions continues today going strong- designing affordable products for developing countries through the engineering design process. Not only does IGS take an idea from concept to final product, but we also get to collaborate with industry experts and allow members to gain valuable skills and experiences that can be applicable to their future careers.
