Solve identifies and supports lasting solutions to the world's most pressing challenges. It’s  a community who brings together technologists, social entrepreneurs, business leaders, policymakers, researchers, and other change makers.

Solve at MIT is an 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.

The four new challenges for 2017 have recently been announced, allowing for tech solutions from innovators, entrepreneurs, and startups:

1.       Youth, Skills, and the Workforce of the Future

2.       Brain Health

3.       Sustainable Urban Communities

4.       Women and Technology

The deadline for submission is coming up on August 1, 2017, and is open for global applicants.


After the application process, a sorting process identifies the best solutions through open innovation.

Selected finalists will pitch in New York during the U.N. General Assembly.
