Join our mission—become a Member of MIT Solve.
Benefits of Membership
Members of the MIT Solve community support our mission to solve the world’s most pressing problems through partnership and open innovation—as well as the Solver teams who are piloting and implementing solutions to those Global Challenges.
Solve membership is $5,000 annually and fully tax-deductible. MIT is a recognized IRS 501(c)(3) charitable entity. 100 percent of Solve Member donations go towards Solver grants and support to help Solver teams pilot and scale their work.
As a Solve Member, you'll have the opportunity to:
- Support tech entrepreneurs from Solve’s global pipeline of startups solving big Global Challenges: 30+ new Solver teams are selected yearly at our pitch event, Solve Challenge Finals, during UN General Assembly Week in New York City.
- Collaborate with Solve members at year-round workshops and our annual events, Solve at MIT and Solve Challenge Finals. Members are leaders from Starbucks, HP, Google, BNP Paribas, Novartis Foundation, Medtronic Foundation, Save the Children, and many more organizations.
- Influence the design of the next Global Challenges. Members are viewed as thought leaders in their field and have the opportunity to inform Solve’s future Challenges in a variety of ways—from timely discussions to sponsoring roundtables with key stakeholders within their company or community.
