Who we are


Make48 started and continues as the world’s largest televised invention competition. We foster invention and education through a growing community of motivated inventors and makers. Celebrating innovation, creativity, and the maker movement, Make48 is providing a stage for those to showcase their skills, present ideas and connect with others.


Built on the principles of collaboration and community, Make48 starts from the ground up by creating an innovation ecosystem. We do this by leveraging local universities, makerspaces, and corporations to bring the community alive through innovation. 


Unlocking the tools needed to build and sharing the talents of everyday people, Make48 is growing. We are bringing programming and competitions to some of the nation's most innovative cities and colleges and this is your opportunity to join a growing team.
