Solv(ED) Youth Innovation Challenge is an offshoot of MIT Solve of Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This challenge was opened on September 17, 2021. Solv(ED) is created to prompt young people age 24 and younger, from any and every part of the world to become problem-solvers in their communities and the world by extension.
The Solv(ED) Youth Innovation Challenge is seeking tech-based solutions that offer the following:
- Improves learning opportunities and outcomes for learners across their lifetimes, from early childhood on.
- Supports financial and economic opportunities for all.
- Accelerates healthcare access and health outcomes — reducing and eliminating disparities in health.
- Takes action to combat climate change and its impact.
- Addresses an unmet social, environmental, or economic need that has not been mentioned in the four topics above.
- Applicants are welcome whether their solution is still a concept, a product that is being sampled, a service being anchored in their local community, an operational nonprofit, or a for-profit organization.
What Do I Stand To Gain?
- The 10 “most promising” solutions will be judged and selected to share over $200,000 in prize funding.
- Selected participants will also receive mentorship and training from the MIT (Massachusetts Institute for Technology) and MIT Solve community.
