Thursday, January 17, 2013

A team of Sarah Lawrence College students has been selected to participate in the 4th Annual Hult Prize Regional Final in Boston. The team, comprised of Sachi Shah ‘15, Jacqueline Assar ‘14, Maria Munoz ‘13, and captain Teresa Phiri ’13, is one of 350 college groups competing in five regional competitions around the world. They are charged with creating a social venture that will craft a solution to the 2013 Hult Prize Challenge, which has been personally selected by President Bill Clinton around the theme of “The Global Food Crisis.” The team will present their solution in Boston in early March, with the goal of becoming the winning regional team and moving on to the Hult Accelerator, a “world class center for innovation and entrepreneurship located in Boston.”
