At an education and innovation roadshow organized by Samsung India in Hyderabad young college students came forward and identified problems that people and society are facing in the state and the country, pledging to Solve for Tomorrow.
Students in Hyderabad said they want to solve real-world problems such as limited access to education, language barriers in learning, excessive pollution, manufacturing and agricultural inefficiencies, lack of healthcare support, limited agricultural knowledge, among others. They said they require a platform such as Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow education and innovation competition that can guide and support them in turning their ideas into action and help transform people’s lives.
The event, which was organized to talk about Samsung’s global CSR program Solve for Tomorrow, was attended by over 500 students in Hyderabad alongside young innovators from the city — Dr. Satyanaryana Kuchibhatla, co-founder, Parisodhana Technologies that works in the field of healthcare and wellness products, Mr. R Shanmukha Rao, innovator, who has worked towards making complex agricultural equipment accessible and affordable to small farmers/land owners and Mr. Shrikanth Reddy, Data Scientist and Founder – Hala Mobility, which works in the space of sustainable mobility.
These innovators, who currently run successful social enterprises, spoke to the students about their experiences of success and failure and their vision to transform communities around them.
