The #Solvey Process

A couple weeks ago, I started down a road which I believe could become quite a journey, My friend Louis and I made a video on youtube, looking for the worlds most ambitious problem solving charity idea. Asking applicants to submit video applications so we can find the best idea to support and help develop.

From 15th June – 30th June 2015 the video received 32,040 views and 2,141 likes on youtube & 27,901 views and 1,491 likes on Facebook, countless comments and emails
The Total Numbers 
82 qualifying applications
We also received offers of support from an insane community of people offering data warehousing, public speaking, blogging and community troubleshooting services and partnerships to help develop the Solvey Project. We also got tweets and shares from our friends in various think tanks, tech companies, youtubers, and even old friends, it was amazing and pretty humbling.
The viewers had a window of a little over two weeks to make, upload and share their entry with us and 85 people from Bahrain, UK, South Africa, Canada, United States, France, Germany and many many more submitted videos.
Of the 85 applications : 66 were uploaded to Youtube, 17 were made on Storie, 2 on Vimeo
65 of them were shared to us on twitter 6 shared via Storie, 6 via email & 5 via youtube
These are the heroes that have stuck their neck on the line, used their creative powers and their voices to talk publicly about something they care about! Most of these outstanding humans are flipping teenagers!!!!

  1. Fit Tribe (#67 @jaxfittribe) is an underdog. I have been relentlessly pursuing this dream. I’ll never give up. I will do whatever it takes. I will open myself up to vulnerability. I dream big. I believe we can create a better world together. I have a global, video driven plan. My heart is 100% in this. I’ve been told I exude passion in helping others. I just need help. I can’t do this alone. The Solvey Project couldn’t be more perfect for my dream. In the meantime, I’ll continue to dare greatly.

  2. When are you guys coming to New Delhi? And can people come who have not thought of any ideas for this project?
