10 Solvers selected @ MIT Solve’s Brain Health Challenge

Win­ners of the 2017 Brain Health Chal­lenge by MIT Solve, select­ed on Sep­tem­ber 17th, 2017


Yes­ter­day, after a day of great pitch­es and tough deci­sions, the Judges @ MIT Solve’s Brain Health Chal­lenge select­ed 10 Win­ners (called “Solvers”) devel­op­ing scal­able tech­nol­o­gy solu­tions that:

  • Empow­er peo­ple to improve their over­all brain health and fit­ness, men­tal well-being, and men­tal resilien­cy
  • Enable ear­li­er, more-accu­rate diag­no­sis of prob­lems
  • Increase access to and effi­ca­cy of treat­ments
  • Help build a pos­i­tive, stig­ma-free cul­ture in which all peo­ple feel empow­ered to proac­tive­ly seek bet­ter brain health and men­tal fit­ness

These Solvers will now get advice and resources to help fur­ther devel­op and scale their solu­tions, includ­ing com­pli­men­ta­ry reg­is­tra­tion to par­tic­i­pate in the 2017 Sharp­Brains Vir­tu­al Sum­mit (Decem­ber 5–7th) and inter­act with the broad­er com­mu­ni­ty and indus­try of dig­i­tal brain health and brain enhance­ment.

Please join me in con­grat­u­lat­ing them for their great work so far, and spend some time learn­ing about their inno­v­a­tive ideas and solu­tions:
