Solve Challenge Finals

Solve Challenge Finals in New York City is the premier social impact pitch event during UN General Assembly week. The event brings together the Solve community with a diverse group of innovators with solutions to Solve’s 2019 Global Challenges: Circular Economy, Community-Driven Innovation, Early Childhood Development, and Healthy Cities.

During the event, these entrepreneurs will pitch their solutions to a panel of expert judges and a live audience. Those selected will form the next Solver class, joining the Solve community to build partnerships with cross-sector leaders—including Solve Members such as Starbucks, HP, Google, and Save the Children—that help pilot, scale, and implement their tech-based solutions and take action on complex Global Challenges.

This year, there is over $1.6 million in potential funding available for the selected Solver teams, and recipients of the following Challenge prizes, among others, will be announced: the AI Innovations Prize, supported by the Patrick J. McGovern Foundation and Schmidt Futures; the GM Prize on Community-Driven Innovation and the GM Prize on Circular Economy; and the Innovation for Women Prize, supported by the Vodafone Americas Foundation.

This event is part of the Climate Finance, Investment and Carbon Pricing program of Climate Week NYC.
