Solve for Tomorrow aims at fostering innovation and addressing societal challenges with a global perspective


Samsung India has hosted a roadshow at GLA University in Mathura where over 100 students demonstrated their intent to participate in Solve for Tomorrow to solve pressing global issues. Samsung Solve for Tomorrow is a national education and innovation competition that aims to encourage a culture of innovative thinking and problem solving amongst the country’s next generation.


The students came forward and expressed their commitment to solving real-world problems such as, water pollution, and poor air quality. They said they require a platform such as Samsung’s ‘Solve for Tomorrow’ that can guide and support them in turning their ideas into action and help transform people’s lives.


Mr. Syed Shahabaz, founder of Surface Moto, an eco-conscious start-up building micro EVs for short distance, motivated the students at the event. He shared his experience of building a transformative innovation in the field of electric mobility. He also encouraged them to think of innovative ideas to solve real-world problems.


Samsung has recently announced its partnership with the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology’s (MeitY’s) Startup Hub and Foundation for Innovation & Technology Transfer (FITT), IIT Delhi, and the United Nations in India for the third season of ‘Solve for Tomorrow’.


This year, the ‘Solve for Tomorrow’ programme introduces two distinct tracks – School Track and Youth Track, each dedicated to championing a specific theme and targeted towards different age groups. Both the tracks will run simultaneously, ensuring equal opportunity and a level playing field for all students.

The School Track, is tailored for students aged 14-17, focusing on the theme “community and inclusion”. The track underscores the importance of uplifting underprivileged groups, improving accessibility to health & social inclusion for all through social innovations and hence ‘Solving for India’.

The Youth Track on the other hand, targets individuals aged 18-22, with a focus on the theme “environment and sustainability”. The track seeks innovative ideas for reducing carbon footprint, protecting the environment & promoting sustainability and hence ‘Solving for the World’.
