Join us for MIT IDEAS Global Challenge Awards Celebration on Monday, May 5, an inspiring event that embodies MIT’s innovative humanitarian spirit. Since its founding in 2001, IDEAS has been a launch point for entrepreneurs and sustainable impact. We have awarded more than $600,000 to 104 teams to turn their ideas into reality. Those ideas are benefitting hundreds of thousands of people around the globe.
This year, more than 40 teams are working with communities around the world to develop solutions to challenges such as waste treatment, clean water, healthcare, education, disaster relief and much more.
Be part of the moment when their ideas come to life. Join us on Monday, May 5:
6:30 pm - Mix and Mingle with Teams
7:00 pm – The Awards Ceremony
8:30 pm – A Special Toast to Teams
To meet the teams in advance and to learn about the ideas they're working on, join us on Monday, April 28 at the Innovation Showcase (open to the public). Details here: http://globalchallenge.mit.edu/events/view/326
See you on May 5th!
