Solve for Tomorrow runner-up on Forbes' list “23 women worth following in 2023”

Victoria Stanisławska, runner-up in the first (2021/2022) edition of Samsung’s Solve for Tomorrow Poland, has been included in Forbes magazine’s list of “23 women worth following in 2023”.

The 17-year-old National Children Fund scholar and her team participated in the program with a prototype air purifier relying on algae. This experience provided the young innovator with important knowledge and tools that helped her succeed.

“Participation in Solve for Tomorrow was a source of great inspiration and encouraged me to continue expanding my knowledge about the protection of the environment, seas, and oceans, and about their role in combating climate change,” said Victoria.

“Working to solve the program’s tasks, we learned how to operate as a team, with each of its members having a clearly defined role. It was also a great opportunity for me to acquire new skills, such as communicating, attracting new partners, and securing funds needed to build a prototype of the solution we proposed. During the workshop, I learned how to prototype and apply the design thinking approach. I could also draw upon the experience of other teams, including those with international make-up. I strongly recommend participation in Solve for Tomorrow for my peers, as the entire undertaking is a great intellectual adventure,” Victoria explained.

Samsung Solve for Tomorrow encourages young minds to envision and realize innovative solutions that can resolve challenges and risks that their communities face. Since its launch in 2010, Solve for Tomorrow has grown into one of the representative CSR programs of Samsung. As of 2022, over 2.3 million students from 55 countries have participated and it is expected to grow further.
