Eneza Learning Platforms in the MIT Solve challenge

Solve, an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, announced the 60 MIT Solve Challenge finalists. Eneza Education is among the finalists in the Teachers and Educators category. We were selected from a pool of 1,150 applicants from 110 countries. We will present a live pitch of their solution to the most pressing global Challenges at the Solve Challenge Finals on September 23 in New York City to kick off UN General Assembly week.

During the event, the finalists will pitch their solutions to one of Solve’s 2018 Global Challenges:

(1) Coastal Communities,

(2) Frontlines of Health,

(3) Teachers & Educators, and

(4) Work of the Future

to a panel of expert judges from organizations such as the World Bank Group, Rockefeller Foundation, TPG/The Rise Fund, World Health Organization, Citi, and Starbucks, and a live audience. After the pitches, Diane von Furstenberg, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, and Cheryl Dorsey will discuss bridging the pioneer gap for early-stage innovators to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

“Solve Challenge Finals is a unique opportunity to showcase the most promising tech-based solutions to global challenges,” said Solve’s Executive Director, Alex Amouyel.

During the event, Solve’s esteemed panel of judges will choose 30+ finalists to become the next Solver class. As a Solver, these entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to meet and build partnerships with Solve members to help accelerate their solutions. More than $650,000 of funding is available for selected Solver teams, including:

  • The General Motors Prize for Advanced Technologies
  • The Artificial Intelligence for the Betterment of Humanity Prize, supported by the Patrick J. McGovern Foundation
  • UN Women She Innovates Prize for Gender-Responsive Innovation, made possible by Citi, with support from SAP Next-Gen
  • The Blockchain for Social Impact Prize to become ConsenSys Blockchain for Social Impact Coalition (BSIC) Fellows.

We are among 15 finalists in the Teachers & Educators Category. Eneza solution is an SMS, USSD and web-based platform that provides curriculum aligned content to users. With content on teacher training and capacity development, teachers are able to take lessons, answer questions and ask experts on critical in-class experiences right from their mobile phones or computers.
