Hult Prize ESSEC Tunis 2020 Award challenge: “Building start-ups that have a net impact on environment for every dollar earned”

The Hult Prize ESSEC Tunis presents the concept of the Hult Prize on its social media page by stating that “by participating in your university’s Hult Prize On Campus program, you will acquire the necessary skills to transform your idea into a sustainable project. The winning team of the program will have a guaranteed place in the regional summit, in more than 27 different countries.

Bringing together people from different cultures and backgrounds, the initiative offers you the opportunity to present your innovative ideas, learn from your peers, inspire and be inspired by a generation of young leaders committed to changing the world through their perception of different businesses.

More than 45 teams will access the world’s largest accelerator, to be held in Ashridge Castle, London, and the top six teams will present their ideas for $1 million in start-up funding at United Nations headquarters in New York.

The Hult ESSEC Tunis Prize also makes an in-depth presentation on the foundation of the Hult Prize, stating that it is the largest learning platform for social change.

The Hult ESSEC Tunis Prize revealed that the foundation enables students to tackle the world’s most critical problems with their innovative and disruptive ideas.

In fact, more than 2 million students around the world have been influenced by the Hult Prize competition. This social movement is brought to universities through the On Campus program. A program that allows students to train, educate and inspire others. At the end of this program, the winning team will have a guaranteed place at one of the 25 regional summits of their choice. Nevertheless, ESSEC University was affected by this movement in 2017 when the student members of the Hult ESSEC Prize organized their first edition.

This year and after two successful editions, the Hult ESSEC Tunis Prize paved the way for new actors of change to start the third edition of the Hult Prize with them.

The purpose of this initiative is to impact and inspire change in ESSEC Tunis students.

ESSEC Tunis Campus Director Mohamed Ghayadhi participated in the first edition with his “Genius Predictors” team and qualified for the London Regional Summit. It is an opportunity for him and the whole team to meet other teams from around the world and present their project idea to world leaders.

In turn, Mohammed Amine Slimene, Deputy Director of the campus, participated in the second edition as a competitor with his “Enactors” team. They were also convincing in presenting their creative ideas.

In addition, the marketing coordinator of the Hult ESSEC Prize, Yasmine Oueslati, has experience with international movements such as the junior company and Enactus ESSECT, alongside the logistics coordinator Salima ben Ammara. They both participated in the ESSECT On Campus program of the Hult Prize for Youth Unemployment in 2019. In fact, Salima’s team came in third place. She said it was one of the most exciting and meaningful experiences she has ever had because of its social aspect.

In addition, the Hult ESSECT Awards team last August recruited additional members to improve its team. Each coordinator, therefore, works with 3 to 4 actively motivated and creative members, who help the Hult ESSEC Tunis Awards team to achieve the objectives in a shorter time.

The Hult ESSEC Tunis Awards team started working last July with the marketing team that launched the Instagram page and published daily publications in the Hult ESSECT Awards social media accounts to help people and especially students understand the Hult Award concept, cycle, rules and prices.

The Hult ESSEC Tunis Awards team aims to spread this social movement until it becomes part of the university’s “culture” and to raise public awareness of the importance of social change for a better future and the well-being of the next generation.
