Inspiring Millions to a Million: An Evening With Ahmad Ashkar

Founded in 2009 by Ahmad Ashkar, the Hult Prize has become the world’s largest open innovation platform and student competition for social good. Every year thousands of students apply for the challenge, many more are inspired to become social entrepreneurs, endless enthralling ideas are propelled and one team receives $1,000,000,000 to launch their social enterprise.
In addition to the seed capital winners also receive mentorship and advice from international business leaders. Past winners of the Hult Prize include the “Magic Bus”, an organization tacking the challenges faced by crowded urban spaces and “Aspire” an organization that grows, processes and sells edible insects in a bid to address the global food crisis.
Here’s a platform that truly helps students’ ideas grow!
Ahmad Ashkar, whose inspirational energy has already ignited the sparks of thousands of students each year, will be in Shanghai this January. Ahmad will be interacting with the Green Initiatives community and sharing his experiences on what motivated him to launch this initiative, the challenges he faced, his ideas for the future and what keeps him inspired.
Meet the man and feel the energy that has and still will impact so many people’s futures, including yours!

除了奖金,赢得霍特奖的团队会受到世界级企业的指导和建议。过去赢得霍特奖的包括“Magic Bus”,一个针对挑战拥挤城市空间问题的组织。以及“Aspire”,一个培养,加工和销售食用昆虫来解决的全球粮食危机的组织。
