    Solve at MIT 2024

    It’s easy to think that the challenges facing us today are insurmountable – that the issues are too big and complex, that we are too divided and gridlocked to actualize solutions at scale. Yet, year after year, the Solve community uncovers incredible innovators who are facing these issues head-on and making a real difference in their communities and the world. Join us for Solve at MIT 2024 on MIT’s Campus, where we’ll convene cross-sector leaders, new voices, and innovative tech-based solutions at the problem-solving table.
