Three PSB Paris School of Business students had the amazing opportunity to participate to the Hult Prize 2016 challenge: Crowded Urbain Spaces

 

The Hult Prize Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to launching the world’s next wave of social entrepreneurs, encourages and challenges teams all around the world to come up with the next innovative idea to solve the planets biggest challenges. The Hult Prize winners can make their idea reality with the help of 1 million USD.

 

 

Three students from PSB Paris School of Business were qualified for the second phase of the social entrepreneurship competition and pitched their innovative idea.

 

On Friday March 12, teams from all around the world gathered in San Francisco, Boston, London, and Dubai for the regionals. Our three students had the amazing opportunity to be part of the 60 teams to travel and present their projects in London to a board of specialist.

 

Each team had 6 minutes to present and convince the board of judges that they have the best innovative idea. Our three students presented their project called CityGoGreen, which consists on placing agricultural self-efficient microstructures on the roofs of favelas in Rio.  Their idea was sadly not chosen among the 6 final projects but the students benefited from a unique and exeptionnal experience.
