Solve Challenge Finals 2023

New York, NY

Overview Schedule Speakers Livestream

Solve Challenge Finals 2023 is an unparalleled live pitch event bringing together global investors, philanthropists and other cross-sector leaders who are making big impacts across the world. During the event, Solve will reveal the 31 most promising tech-based solutions that address our 2023 Global Challenges. A delegate from each of the selected teams will pitch their solutions live for a chance to win over $1 million in prize funding and to meet our community of supporters and collaborators.

To date, Solve has allocated over $70 million in funding for innovators and over 700 partnerships. This work is made possible thanks to Solve Supporters such as General Motors, Patrick J. McGovern Foundation, HP, Sony, Morgridge Family Foundation, and more.

Solve Challenge Finals has taken place annually since 2017 as social impact leaders gather for the United Nations General Assembly. This timing also grounds Solve in our commitment to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
