Bridging the opportunity gap in America

In the next 10 years, it’s estimated that 12 million tech jobs will go unfilled in America. During the same time, 6 million Americans won’t be able to find employment due to unequal exposure to tech career paths.

In an effort to bridge that divide we’re teaming up with NationSwell, an organization dedicated to powering solutions and innovations that will move the world forward, to find entrepreneurs tackling this issue.

With the Samsung NEXT Innovation Challenge, we’re looking for innovators focused on advancing opportunities in education, workforce development, or economic empowerment.

We’ll be picking five finalists and one winner for the challenge, and are giving away $25,000 in cash and an additional $25,000 in Samsung hardware. The winner will also receive $200,000 in promotional value and a year membership to the NationSwell Council.

So if you or someone you know have built a tech solution in one of those areas, we want to know about it. Enter the Samsung NEXT Innovation Challenge or nominate an entrepreneur today.
