Challenge Design Workshop hosted by Solve and BNP Paribas

New York, NY

Eliminating packaging waste in Chile. Teaching and preserving indigenous language in Australia. Plumbing-free toilets for informal settlements worldwide. MIT’s Solve initiative identifies and supports these and many other social innovators with the best solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. Join us for a workshop with cross-sector leaders to identify where innovative technology and business approaches can be the most catalytic for social and environmental impact.

Your perspective and expertise will help formulate specific, actionable challenge topics that will be posed by MIT Solve to innovators around the world. In turn, those innovators will develop and submit technology-driven solutions on Solve’s open innovation platform. The best solutions will be invited to partner with the global network of organizations that are Members of the Solve community.
