Solve is now accepting solutions for the MIT – Solve Global Challenges. Solve is a marketplace connecting innovators with resources to solve the world’s most pressing challenges through open innovation and partnership. Each year, Solve announces new challenges for which it seeks solutions. Solve challenges are a unique opportunity to bring your ideas and talent to a growing global community tackling the most important challenges facing the world today.
Solve at MIT is a flagship annual event held on the MIT campus in Cambridge, MA, bringing together over 300 leaders from the tech industry, business, philanthropy, government, and civil society. Solvers and their solutions will be featured on stage, in online and written materials, and through dedicated challenge workshops. Solve staff will continue supporting Solvers to match-make partnerships with our community members who will help make Solvers’ solutions a reality.
Do you have experience in these areas of innovation? If you have a solution to one of these big global challenges, apply to become a Solver by August 1 and join the Solve community today.
Anyone the world over can participate in a Solve challenge and submit a solution.
