CAMPAIGN: Cisco's Global Problem Solvers

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

With digitization and the Internet of Things (IoT), good ideas can make a difference more quickly than ever before by driving economic development and helping people solve some of our most pressing social and environmental challenges.

Things like wells, cars, watches, refrigerators, and more will be connected to the Internet for the first time so that they can transmit and receive information. Digitization is about connecting people and things to the Internet so that the information those connections provide can be used to improve processes and decision-making. 

The Cisco Global Problem Solver Challenge is an open call for innovative technological solutions for the greater good. The winning team will receive $100,000 USD to help advance their technology-enabled solution towards the market. Up to 9 more teams will receive between $75,000 and $10,000. It only takes a few minutes to register your team for the challenge and the deadline for your full submission is May 30, 2017 at 5pmPT.
