Attention MMU students from high and low, this just in, our university has been selected for the first time ever to Host local edition of Hult Prize as students answer the United Nations challenge and go head to head for the chance to win USD $1 million.
I’m sure at this point you’re all wondering. Hult Prize ah? Never heard of that. Has it got anything to do with the Hulk? Is it like a strength contest? Well, no.
The Hult Prize is the world’s biggest engine for the launch of for-good, for-profit startups emerging from university with over 2500 staff and volunteers around the world. Basically, what it does is encourage students to engage in business start-ups that benefit the community in a whole. This initiative has even be called the “Nobel Prize for Students”.
In short, this is an entrepreneurial approach to making the world a better place and where can you go wrong with that. Have the tickle to know more?
