Cisco is committed to positively impacting 1 billion people by 2025 and seeks to inspire and empower a generation of global problem solvers who will not only survive – but thrive – in our increasingly digital economy. With the Internet of Things (IoT) and digital technologies connecting more devices and data, good ideas now have the ability to make a difference more quickly than ever before – and Cisco is here to help.
The fifth annual Cisco Global Problem Solver Challenge aims to recognize new business ideas that leverage technology for social impact from entrepreneurs around the world. The goal is to advance early-stage projects that are beyond the concept or idea formation stage, but which have not yet generated over $1M USD in funding and/or revenue.
This year’s $1,000,000 USD prize pool will help accelerate the adoption of breakthrough technology, products, and services that drive economic development and/or solve social or environmental problems.
