Friends of the IDEAS Global Challenge

The IDEAS Global Challenge is made possible in part through the generous financial contributions of many companies and individuals.

On behalf of the entire MIT community and our partners, we’d like to extend our thanks to the many individuals who have generously contributed time, talent and resources to the IDEAS Global Challenge. We cannot do this without you.

If you are interested in learning more about the IDEAS Global Challenge and would like to know how you or your company can help, please contact us.

You can also donate now. Your donation will help IDEAS Global Challenge teams use their ingenuity, enthusiasm, and skills to make a positive difference in the world.

The IDEAS Global Challenge sponsors underwrite awards, invest in our technology, and contribute toward the costs of running the competition. We are especially grateful to:
