LFSF Start'up Lycee winners at the 2018 Annual Hult Prize Finals and Awards Ceremony
Through their 2018 Start'up Lycée experience, our LFSF students were introduced to the Hult International Business School in San Francisco that graciously hosted our event last spring.
Strong of this relationship, our winning team was invited to attend the much anticipated 2018 Annual Hult Prize Finals and Awards Ceremony at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.
The Hult Prize is the world’s largest engine for the creation and launch of sustainable and impact centered startups emerging from university, offering a grand prize of USD1 million. This year, former President Bill Clinton - who served as a judge- awarded $1 million in seed funding to four Pakistani-American students who created a ridesharing rickshaw startup service to help refugees—especially women—travel to major points of interest in Pakistan.
It was a very unique opportunity for our 4 LFSF students, Hannah, Thomas, François and Ethan, to share this exciting moment, and meet the 42nd President of the United States of America. “The Hult Prize in so many ways represents the way the world has to function in the 21st Century” – President Bill Clinton
