HULT Prize UENR To Have Physical Program Amidst Pandemic And School Closure

Hult Prize UENR inspires innovation and change by leading the students to think differently about how business can transform lives and be used to create solutions to some of humanity’s biggest challenges.

In 2020/21, the Hult Prize is asking teams (students) around the world to build viable food enterprises that will impact the lives of 10M people in the next decade while strengthening communities, increasing incomes, feeding the hungry and creating jobs.

We have about 149 registered teams in UENR who will go through elimination stages until 9 finalists are selected to compete at the finals. The elimination stage which will take place on Friday, 20th November 2020 will be virtually augmented.

The finals which is also expected to take place on Friday, 27th November, 2020 will help us to select winning teams which will automatically advance into one of the +25 regional summits which take place across the world in March – April, 2021.

In response to the directives from the President of the Republic of Ghana on Measures Taken Against Spread of Coronavius on 18th October 2020, all tertiary institutions were instructed to resume in January 2021.

The organizing committee planned to make the participant decide the method they would like to use for the event of which about 57% went in for Virtual against 43% for physical.

Due to the highest number of participants (447-559) at the preliminary stage, they decided to augment that virtually and have the final event physically.

The Campus Director, King Lucas added that “the finals will have less than 100 people (participants, organizers, judges and guests) at the event and also, have guests joining from other countries physically and virtually. And we will strictly adhere to COVID-19 regulations during the event”.
