Announcing Solve’s 2021 Global Challenges

After a year of turmoil, including a major threat to our collective health,
disruption in schooling, lack of access to digital connectivity and
meaningful work, a reckoning in the US after centuries of institutionalized
racism, and worsening natural hazards—supporting diverse innovators who are
solving these challenges is more urgent than ever.

Solve is committed to bolstering communities across the world as well as
the United States by supporting innovators who are addressing our 2021
Global Challenges through funding, mentorship, and an MIT-backed community.
Whether you're a prospective Solve applicant or partner, we hope you’ll
join us!
