The contest itself recognizes and rewards technological innovations and breakthroughs in the field of education in emerging economies. Solve Education! aspires to help young people across the globe receive quality and effective education through apps.
From March 22 to 24, the finalists are set to compete in a pitch contest at the Global Education and Skills Forum (GESF) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The forum will further shortlist six startups to compete in the grand final. US$25,000 will be awarded to the top three winners. The first prize winner is set to receive the Next Billion Prize Trophy.
