Solve at MIT 2018

Annual Flagship Meeting

Solve at MIT is the annual flagship Solve event, which takes place on MIT’s campus. The Solver class presents their solutions to Solve Challenges, and participates in workshops with Solve members to develop partnerships to pilot and implement the solutions. The next set of Solve Challenges are also workshopped at this event.

Three Days of Solutions, Connections, and Partnerships

Solve at MIT will feature our selected Solver class, as well as the foremost leaders from corporations, foundations, nonprofit organizations, government, academia, and the media. The Solve community is united by a common goal: partnering to implement the best solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.

  • Five plenary sessions: Panel discussions featuring top speakers.

  • Challenge workshops: Working sessions that focus on Solve’s current and new challenges, with the aim of developing partnerships to pilot and scale solutions.

  • Salon Dinners: Facilitated intimate dinners that encourage group conversation around a specific topic.
