Hi Everyone –
We’re excited to announce that MIT’s Solve initiative is looking for tech solutions around four new Global Challenges, and there’s more than $650,000 in prize funding up for grabs!
Coastal Communities: How can coastal communities mitigate and adapt to climate change while developing and prospering? #CoastalCommunities
Frontlines of Health: How can communities invest in frontline health workers and services to improve their access to effective and affordable care? #HealthWorkers
Teachers and Educators: How can teachers and educators provide accessible, personalized, and creative learning experiences for all? #EduLeaders
Work of the Future: How can those most affected by the technology-driven transformations of work create productive and prosperous livelihoods for themselves? #FutureOfWork
If you’re interested in applying, here’s how the program works: Solve advances lasting solutions from tech entrepreneurs to address the world’s most pressing problems. Solve issues four Challenges each year across its pillars — Economic Prosperity, Health, Learning, and Sustainability — to find the most promising Solver teams who will drive transformational change. Each Solver receives $10,000 from MIT Solve and opportunities for additional funding from the Solve community, including prizes from General Motors and the Patrick J. McGovern Foundation. Solve then deploys its global community of private, public, and nonprofit leaders to form partnerships these Solver teams need to scale their impact.
If you have a solution for Solve’s four new challenges, apply by July 1, 2018 at solve.mit.edu.
