Mina’s List Voted Audience Favorite at MIT Solve Awards

This past Sunday, September 17, at the MIT Solve Challenge Finals in New York City, an audience of technology innovators and entrepreneurs picked the Mina’s List/Voatz team’s project as the one they were most excited to learn about.

Mina’s List and Voatz’s campaigning and fundraising mobile platform, which will enable women candidates worldwide to safely and securely overcome the economic and social barriers preventing women’s political participation, was selected as a Finalist for the Solve Challenge out of 953 solutions from 103 countries across the globe. On Sunday, all of the Solve Challenge Finalists were invited to pitch their solution to the team of judges and audience members. In the video below, Mina’s List Founder and Director Tanya Henderson explains how women’s increased political representation is essential for global development, and how Mina’s List and Voatz’s solution will help women candidates run for office on a women’s rights platform, and win.
