When we launched the LinkedIn Economic Graph Challenge in October 2014, our goal was to work with the best researchers across the U.S. to help solve some of the world’s most pressing issues of our time, using LinkedIn data. We have selected 12 finalists to work with us. Each team submitted a compelling proposal to utilize LinkedIn data to create economic opportunity. These teams aim to solve problems as diverse as closing employee skill gaps, achieving municipal economic improvements and relieving inequality in the labor market. Their results could potentially positively impact millions of people.
