Each year, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) selects the most promising teams to become Solver teams who will drive transformational change. Their mission is to advance lasting solutions from tech entrepreneurs to address the world’s most pressing problems.
MIT Solve is a marketplace for social impact with the purpose of finding tech entrepreneurs from around the world and broker partnerships across their global community to scale innovative work and promising solutions-driving lasting, transformational change.
If you think you have a solution to the world's biggest challenges, or want to take part in tackling the societal challenges of the future, then this workshop is for you!
Innovation Norway, in collaboration with MIT, is organizing an “MIT Solve” design workshop to foster collaboration and innovation among cross-sector leaders from across the Arctic region to discuss and shape MIT Solve’s 2020 Global Challenges.
Built around highly facilitated small-group discussions, these interactive sessions convene cross-sector leaders to discuss and shape MIT Solve’s annual set of Challenges. Solve’s staff are expert facilitators and help guide conversations to gain the most relevant insights.
