Join the MIT IDEAS Global Challenge for a celebration of the spirit of innovation, entrepreneurship, and public service. This year, over 60 teams are working with communities around the world on challenges such as waste treatment; access to clean water, healthcare, education, and transportation; disaster relief; and much more.

On Thursday, May 2, meet the teams entered this year and celebrate with us as we announce the teams that will be awarded up to $10,000 to make their ideas a reality. This is where ideas come to life! 

The celebration will be in MIT's Room 34-101 and will entail:

6:00pm - Mix and Mingle with Teams

7:00pm - Awards Ceremony

8:30pm - Special Toast to Teams


To meet the teams in advance and check out prototypes and models, join us on Monday, April 29 at the Project Showcase (open to the public). Details here:

See you on May 2!
