For the second year running, Enactus NTU was a supporting partner for the Hult Prize at NTU Singapore. The second edition of the Hult Prize at NTU Singapore concluded with SDI Academy clinching the top prize for their idea to help migrant workers kickstart their own social enterprises when they return home.
SDI Academy will next compete in one of 26 regional finals happening around the world in March 2019 and vie to win the grand prize of US$1 million.
The second and third-placed teams, Givfunds and Erudite, will receive favourable consideration for entry to the regional round.
The theme for the 2019 Hult Prize challenge is to “create opportunities for meaningful work for youth” and participants are tasked to create sustainable, scalable, fast-growing impact enterprises that create these opportunities for 10,000 youth within the next decade. The teams were evaluated based on their alignment to the theme, dedication to impact, market feasibility, disruptiveness and scalability. Industry experts and start-up mentors were invited as judges.
Organized in conjunction with Enactus NTU, this event was supported by NTUitive, NTU Career & Attachment Office and the NTU Office of Student Community and Engagement.
