About the Competition

As the world faces the worst refugee crisis in recent history, the MIT Enterprise Forum Pan Arab (MITEF Pan Arab) is on a mission to seek disruptive and scalable long-term solutions by harnessing the power of technology. The MITEF Pan Arab launched on World Refugee Day in 2016, the ‘Innovate for Refugees’ global competition in partnership with key players around the globe. The aim of the competition is to find and reward tech-driven cutting-edge solutions that address the most acute challenges faced by refugees.

 

Known for empowering entrepreneurs to develop future-looking solutions to community challenges, MITEF Pan Arab’s ‘Innovate for Refugees’ competition will be open for participants from around the world and is determined to engage and reach out to entrepreneurs, amongst them refugees.
