In February of this year, nearly 1,200 talented global problem-solving social entrepreneurs submitted a 90-second video pitch and written application in an attempt to win the Cisco Global Problem Solver Challenge 2022. In April, the judges selected 94 teams to advance to the semifinals where they could receive feedback on their video and provide a deeper understanding of their work. The field has now been painstakingly narrowed to 44 Finalists with astonishing social technologies.
On Tuesday, August 23, 2022, from 7:00 to 8:00 am PT, Cisco will host a live virtual event to award the 2022 winners $1,000,000 USD in cash prizes. We hope you will join us for this exciting reveal. The awards announcement is your opportunity to meet the future leaders of global social entrepreneurship and learn how the technology they developed positively impacts people and the planet.
