Massachusetts Institute of Technology – MIT Solve Global Challenges 2018 for Entrepreneurs. The “Solve” program at MIT announces four global challenges in 2018, inviting anyone in the world to propose solutions to them. With the intention to help potential candidates financially to continue their studies Massachusetts Institute of Technology has introduced Solve Global Challenges 2018.
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.
- Work for the Future: How can those most affected by the technology-driven transformations of work create productive and prosperous livelihoods for themselves?
- Frontline 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?
- Coastal Communities: How can coastal communities mitigate and adapt to climate change while developing and prospering?
Finalists will be invited to a live pitch event in New York during the U.N. General Assembly, where they select Solvers with the most promising solutions. The Solvers then gain access to Solve’s community.

- Match-making with Solve community members that can lead to partnerships to fund, pilot, and scale each solution.
- Funding commitments from our partners if available, as laid out on each challenge page.
