Challenge Design Workshop hosted by Solve and eBay

San Jose, CA

MIT Solve identifies and supports social innovators with the best solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges—whether it's urban farmers in Lagos, ethical plastic recyclers in Bangalore, or storytelling to improve care for Alzheimer’s patients.

You'll join regional cross-sector leaders and social entrepreneurs to identify where innovative technology and business approaches can be the most catalytic in creating social and environmental change.

Your perspective and expertise will help formulate specific, actionable challenge questions 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, including eBay.
