Solving the world’s most pressing challenges through open innovation and partnership.
- Identifying the best solutions to specific, actionable challenges through open innovation.
- Building and convening a community of leaders and changemakers committed to partnering together to pilot and implement these solutions.
While big challenges exist in the world, they are solvable.
No one organization, sector or industry can solve these challenges alone.
- OPEN INNOVATION
Talent and ingenuity are everywhere, and we must tap into them.
Solutions must start, end, and involve the people they’re designed for.
Solutions will include a technological component, but must also address political, economic, and cultural barriers and ensure that technology is adopted by most underserved communities.
Solve was born out of MIT in 2015, a natural offshoot of MIT’s commitment to open technological innovation, and its long commitment to actionable thought leadership in the public sphere.
We will do more than talk about the greatest problems facing our world. We will set the course to solve them.
