Below are some of this week’s opportunities:

MIT SOLVE Challenge

Solve is a global community of private, public, and nonprofit leaders accelerating positive impact. Solve has opened the call for submissions for the next set of challenges: Coastal Communities, Frontlines of Health, Teachers and Educators, and Work of the Future.

  • Coastal Communities - How can coastal communities mitigate and adapt to climate change while developing and prospering?
  • Frontlines of Health - How can communities invest in frontline health workers and services to improve their access to effective and affordable care?
  • Teachers & Educators - How can teachers and educators provide accessible, personalized, and creative learning experiences for all?
  • Work of the Future - How can those most affected by the technology-driven transformations of work create productive and prosperous livelihoods for themselves?

Solve’s challenges are open to anyone with a relevant solution and the deadline to submit is July 1. Once the new Solver class is selected in September, Solve will then deploy its global community of private, public, and nonprofit leaders to form partnerships these tech entrepreneurs need to scale their impact.

If you have a relevant solution, please apply here and make sure to share widely with your networks.
