Andan and MIT SOLVE partner to launch the “Innovation in Refugee Inclusion Prize”
The "Innovation in Refugee Inclusion Prize" is a partnership between Andan Foundation and MIT Solve, aiming at sourcing the globe for the most innovative ideas on how to accelerate and improve refugee economic and social inclusion.
MIT Solve seeks solutions from tech innovators around the world for its 2019 Global Challenges: Circular Economy, Community-Driven Innovation, Early Childhood Development, and Healthy Cities. Anyone can submit a solution and apply for the $1.25 million in prize funding by July 1, 2019. Finalists will be invited to pitch their solutions at Solve Challenge Finals during UN General Assembly Week in New York City on September 22, 2019. At the event, leading cross-sector experts will select 35 of the most promising tech-based innovators to become Solver teams. They will work with Solve for the next year to scale their solutions with the support of funding, networking, mentorship, marketing, and more from the Solve community.
