Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)’s new Solve initiative

We’re excited to announce that the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)’s new Solve initiative is looking for tech solutions to their Brain Health Challenge: How can every person improve their brain health and mental resilience?

Do you have a tech driven solution to this challenge? The submission deadline is August 1, 2017.

Solutions to the Brain Health Challenge are eligible for the Yo-Yo Ma mentorship prize, which will be awarded to a solution who proposes a non-medical intervention that uses the arts and culture to reduce stress and enhance brain fitness and resiliency among resource-limited populations.

What is Solve?

Solve is an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) that identifies and supports lasting solutions to the world's most pressing challenges. Solve is a community that brings together technologists, social entrepreneurs, business leaders, policymakers, researchers, and other change agents to unearth and implement solutions to specific, actionable challenges around education, health, sustainability, and economic prosperity.

Solve issues their challenges for anybody from around the world to apply. They identify the best solutions through open innovation. And they build and convene a community of leaders and change-makers who have the resources, the expertise, the mentorship, and the know-how to get each solution piloted, scaled, and implemented.

If you have a solution on their four new challenges, apply at solve.mit.edu by August 1, 2017.
