Description: Solve’s mission is to inspire extraordinary people to work together to solve the world’s toughest problems.
Solve will convene technologists, philanthropists, business leaders, policy makers, and change agents to examine and address the problems where technology, business innovation, and smart policy can be leveraged to bring about real and lasting change. Solve embraces a diverse community of thought leaders and activists, empowers them to work together, and holds them accountable for their commitments and actions. In this way, the Solve community does not just talk about grand challenges; it works to conquer them.
The Solve program will investigate challenges in each of the four content pillars Learn, Cure, Fuel, and Make, using keynote talks, classic debates, collaborative roundtable discussions, lab tours, technology demonstrations, and workshops.
