UA-Hult-Prize-team

A team of four UA students is one 300 international teams — chosen from among more than 25,000 — to compete for the 7th annual Hult Prize. The UA squad will join students from such schools as the University of Cambridge, Johns Hopkins University, the London School of Economics and Harvard University for the regional competitions in March. (Pictured above, from left, is Peyton Zachrich, business; MBA candidate Vishal Chaurasia; Kelsey Jones, business; and Amanda Pinheiro, bioengineering major.)

Coined the “Nobel Prize for students” by Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunus, the annual Hult Prize Competition, in partnership with the Clinton Global Initiative, is the world’s largest student case competition. Each year a different global challenge is selected and posed by former U.S. President Bill Clinton, and teams must present an innovative, sustainable business start-up idea based on the theme. The winning team receives $1 million in seed capital to turn its social entrepreneurial idea into reality.

Registration is not required, but is encouraged. To register, visit College Goal Sunday online, or call 1-800-233-6734.

TEDxUAkron 4 Open Positions

spacer image

After the success of our last event, “Breaking the Mold”, we have decided to bring TEDxSalons to the University of Akron this coming year. These events are smaller in size and will feature intimate discussions focused on a specific topic. In order to do so, and in turn expand our reach in the community, the current executive board has decided to restructure and create 4 new positions. The 4 positions described in the attachment are now open for TEDxUniversityofAkron and any individuals interested should provide a resume and cover letter. The cover letter should address what position is being applied for, why the individual believes they would be the best person for that position, and what relevant experience they have. Please keep the cover letter limited to one page.

The resume and cover letter should be emailed to tedxuniversityofakron@gmail.com by Monday, February 15th, 2016.

Please don’t hesitate to refer any possibly qualified individuals as well.

Thank you for your time and consideration,
TEDxUniversityofAkron President,
Kyle Flynn
