    Samsung India reveals first shortlist of 100 teams of ‘Solve for Tomorrow’

    Date:

    Jammu Tawi: Samsung has announced a shortlist of 100 teams for its flagship CSR initiative – ‘Solve for Tomorrow', designed to foster an innovation ecosystem in the country. This shortlist includes 50 teams each from the ‘School' and ‘Youth' track who will now compete further in the and innovation competition.

    This year, the shortlists have been done regionally, which has helped the competition reach out to the next generation of Indian Innovators residing in the remotest towns of the country, such as Khurda in Odisha Kachar and Kamrup Rural, in Assam and Amreli in Gujarat. The top 50 ideas submitted in the Youth Track covering the ‘ and sustainability' theme are not only unconventional but also extremely future-focused. Issues like deforestation, plastic waste management, marine pollution, carbon emissions, unsustainable packaging, and poor water management came across as the areas most critical to the youth.

    The ‘School' track, on the other hand, submitted their ideas under the ‘community and inclusion' theme. A total of 232 participants representing the 100 teams will now gear up for the next phase of the ‘Solve For Tomorrow' competition, where they will be equipped with presentation and effective communication skills through expert training and mentoring. This will help them prepare for the regional rounds commencing mid-July.”Samsung believes that our youth possesses immense power and potential to drive positive social change. Our flagship CSR programme ‘Solve for Tomorrow', has, for the first time this year, created a category for school students to cater to their unique skills and ideas. The improvement in the quality of ideas is a testament to the creativity and innovative mindsets they possess. For the first time this year, we also decided to go deeper into the five regions – North, South, West, East and North-East – to ensure we have a more broad-based participation from some of remotest regions of the country. We have received some really well-articulated ideas, and it is incredibly inspiring to see such presentations and clarity of thought coming from the young lot”, said SP Chun, Corporate Vice President, Samsung Southwest Asia.“Together with Samsung, our endeavour is to encourage a problem-solving mindset in the next generation that will act as a catalyst in improving the start-up ecosystem in the country,” said Prof. Preeti Ranjan Panda, MD, FITT, IIT-Delhi.
