Overview Schedule Registration
Solve Challenge Finals is an unparalleled opportunity to be at the forefront of innovation in service of a better world. This event, hosted annually in New York City, unveils Solve’s latest cohort of innovators and their solutions to our Global Challenges. Investors and philanthropists gather to meet the innovators who join from all over the world, hear them pitch their solutions, and watch them win funding from a $1 million prize pool to catalyze scale. Amidst leaders gathering for the United Nations General Assembly and Climate Week, Solve Challenge Finals is progress in action.

What you can look forward to

Outside of reveling in the buzz of NYC during the United Nations General Assembly and Climate Week, these are just a few reasons to join us:

  1. Meeting the 2024 Solver Class in person! All of our newly selected innovators for this year’s cohort will travel from around the world to meet at Solve Challenge Finals. This is the kickoff to their nine-month support program with Solve and an opportunity for them to get to know us, each other, and YOU! 

  2. Listening to the Solver pitches. Each year we leave Solve Challenge Finals feeling hopeful for the future after hearing so many world-changing ideas from these innovators dedicated to change. 

  3. Watching prize reveals! There’s nothing quite like seeing the look on someone’s face when they find out they are a prize recipient! A pool of over $1 million is available for eligible solutions.
