We’re excited to announce the semi-finalists in our Solve for Tomorrow Competition. The competition, open to young people ages 16-25, is running for the second time in the UK, with the aim to find, fuel and celebrate the next generation of tech entrepreneurs. For the last four months the competition has received applications from teams from across the country, sharing their ideas to how tech could help solve a significant societal challenge within one of four key areas; education, sustainability, social isolation or diversity, equity and inclusion.
Selected semi-finalists will take part in a programme of workshops, coaching and 121 mentoring delivered in partnership with Digital Catapult, the UK's authority on advanced digital technology. The semi-finalists will explore the fundamentals of Design Thinking, develop a core understanding of emerging digital technologies and develop their initial ideas to submit to the next round of judging where five teams will be selected as finalists to present to a panel of industry experts on the 27th June 2022.
The winning team for Solve for Tomorrow, will be announced at the final pitch event on 27th June 2022, and will be awarded a cash prize of a £10,000 plus a further six months of support from Samsung and Digital Catapult to help them realise the scope of their ideas. Runners up in the competition will receive additional prizes and Samsung products.
