Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities

Description

The Hult Prize event drives to extract from young minds innovative ideas in developing social businesses that tackle today’s issues. The Hult Foundation is hosting Hult Prize 2015 in partnership with Clinton Global Initiative. It is Bill Clinton himself who handpicked this year's challenge: the focal point of it was to create a social business plan to improve Early Childhood Education (ECE) in urban slums and to ensure that this reaches 10 million people in just 5 years. Under the guidance of Syed Mahmudur Rahman, a team won the Hult Prize competition at the university level and made their mark at the regional competition in Shanghai, China.
