2021 Samsung Solve For Tomorrow Challenge Inspires Canada’s Students to Harness the Power of Technology
This year’s challenge offers over 3,000 post-secondary students across 70+ campuses in Canada the opportunity to help create the world that they want to live in.
Today, Samsung is excited to announce the opening of applications for the 2021 Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Challenge, which combines the power of technology with the power of Enactus student teams across Canada. Since 2018, Samsung Canada and Enactus have partnered to empower students with insights, knowledge, and funding to help create innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. This year’s challenge will empower students to work towards solving specific economic, social and/or environmental needs in their community, related to education, sustainability, diversity, equality & inclusion, and mental health.
“Enactus Canada is excited to expand its partnership with Samsung Canada to launch the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Challenge, inspiring Canada’s next-gen business leaders to seek to implement technological innovations that can create a lasting, positive impact in their communities,” said Nicole Almond, President, Enactus Canada. “Not only is Samsung Canada a pioneering technology company that’s on the cutting edge of innovation, but they are also an excellent example of how technology can be used to help create a better world for us all. We here at Enactus Canada are thrilled to have Samsung Canada’s insights, expertise, and passion for a better world as a part of our Enactus community.”
Ten Enactus teams will be chosen to receive a Samsung Technology Grant, of up to $5,000, to support project implementation and evaluation. New this year, the Enactus teams will also receive the support of the Samsung Technology Advisory Council, made up of Samsung Canada employees, to help with their projects, while also providing a positive mentorship, learning and leadership experience for students.
“At Samsung, we believe in empowering future generations to achieve their full potential, enabling them to help pioneer positive social change and build a better world. We’ve been a key partner with Enactus since 2018 and we’re excited to continue this work, as it is clear what an important role technology plays in student learning,” said Jennifer Groh, Senior Director of Corporate Marketing and Citizenship, Samsung Canada.
Based on the results of the participating Enactus teams’ initiatives over the school year, prizes will be awarded to the top three Enactus teams at the Enactus National Exposition in 2022.
