Turn Your Ideas Into Action!
Imagine a world where global Inter-Governmental Organizations (IGO’s), Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) and non-profits partner with brilliant and passionate student developers - like you - to solve some of the world’s toughest problems. We are launching a new program called Imagine Cup Solve This where you can to do just that!
Through the Imagine Cup Solve This program, you can work on real-world problems submitted by IGOs, NGOs and non-profits as part of your Imagine Cup Competition or Challenge. This marketplace of real-world problems will grow over time as more IGOs, NGOs and non-profits get involved, but you can search through a library of Imagine Cup Solve This problems today on Imaginecup.com to find the issues that matter most to you. Then put your ideas into action as you create solutions that have potential to change the world in Core Competitions including: Software Design, Embedded Development, Game Design, Digital Media, Windows Phone 7 and the Challenges.
Need an idea for your Imagine Cup entry? Looking to work on a project that may have real-world impact? Or maybe you’ve already started your Imagine Cup project and you want to see how it might impact a specific problem from an IGO, NGO or non-profit? Check out the Imagine Cup Solve This Library today.
The Imagine Cup Solve This connects ideas to problems so everybody wins.
