Jalandhar, July 30, 2018: One of the final year B.Sc Economics (Hons) students of Lovely Professional University, Sayan Guchait was selected this year to attend world’s biggest event ‘The Hult Prize Impact Retreat’ in the United Kingdom. It was held in Ashridge Castle, the UK, where Sayan got the opportunity to interact with not only CEO of Hult Prize Foundation Ahmad Ashkar but also CEO of Capgemini, Directors of many reputed companies, students and faculty members of 150+ Universities from across the world. He also worked with students from Cornell University, Duke University, University of Oxford, London School of Economics, University of Warwick and more.

Patronizing the event, former US President Bill Clinton declares the objective of the Hult Prize event every year. He has forwarded the objective of 2018 as “Harness the power of energy to transform the lives of 10 million people by 2025”. The event is, indeed, an exciting opportunity for young entrepreneurs to understand how to face challenges and make their contribution to society. LPU Chancellor Mr. Ashok Mittal congratulated Sayan and advised him to continue working hard.

In fact, the Hult Prize is a massive global platform for students across more than 650 universities around the world, promoting social innovation and entrepreneurship. Former American President Bill Clinton and TIME Magazine named it as one of the “Top 5 Ideas Changing the World”. President Clinton holds that ‘Hult Prize’ is about ‘how the world has to work in the 21st century’. One of the Noble Laureates, Mohammad Yunus calls it “the students’ Noble Prize”. In fact, the Hult Prize promotes social enterprise rather than any charity. The idea is to introduce the thought of doing businesses to benefit under-privileged sections of society.

LPU

Each year, in August, President Clinton announces a problem statement on one of the critical global issues, to challenge students to come up with disruptive solutions. Student teams from around the world work on it to develop unique ideas. The best ideas from each University compete at the National level. The selected teams compete at the Global level, culminating at an intensive accelerator at Boston. It follows by the ‘Grand Finals’ hosted by President Clinton at New York. The winner startup idea gets a million-dollar seed fund, visibility, branding, and investor attention to start-up their social enterprise. Whereas, all other participating teams earn valuable insight, knowledge, experience, and a positive worldview.

Presently, Campus Director Hult Prize Foundation at LPU, Sayan was the only Indian student to be invited at the three-day “Retreat”, where he represented LPU. It was a forum for an exclusive gathering where participants co-created innovative ways to build nation-wide communities. These would allow for a year-round momentum and activity for social enterprise. Sayan collaborated with like-minded social entrepreneurs from around the world. He was mentored by executives from Ernst Young and other noteworthy companies. Sayan has now brought back that world-class experience to India, LPU and its student community.

Sharing about his commitment, Sayan said: “Now, I want to empower a new wave of entrepreneurs who solve some of the world's toughest social challenges through business by acting for a sustainable and inclusive future. I think it is a great time to represent India and co-create innovative ways to build nation-wide communities for the same. I am thankful to LPU which brought me an opportunity to be a part of such a vivid and diverse community.”

With a decade of impact, the Hult Prize has crafted challenges and helped launch startups that actively solve United Nations’ SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). Since 2010, winning startups are for Education- one laptop per child; Clean Water- m.paani; Energy Poverty-sunny money; Global Food Crisis-aspire food group; Healthcare; Early Childhood Education-impact; Doubling Income; Refugee Crisis; and, now Harnessing the Power of Energy.­
