The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)’s Solve initiative is looking for tech solutions around four new Global Challenges:
Coastal Communities: How can coastal communities mitigate and adapt to climate change while developing and prospering?
Frontlines of Health: How can communities invest in frontline health workers and services to improve their access to effective and affordable care?
Teachers and Educators: How can teachers and educators provide accessible, personalized, and creative learning experiences for all?
Work of the Future: How can those left behind by the technology-driven transformations of work create meaningful and prosperous livelihoods for themselves?
Here’s how it 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 Solvers who will drive transformational change. Solve then deploys its global community of private, public, and nonprofit leaders to form partnerships these Solvers need to scale their impact.
