Hult Prize Competition at AUIS

  Join us for the first ever AUIS campus round for the Hult Prize Competition! Students compete to pitch their ideas for ventures aimed at solving youth unemployment. Successful teams will have the chance to move on to the next round, pitch internationally, and move one step closer to winning $1,000,000! Any student who is interested in competing in the online rounds and/or participating in Hult Prize next year is encouraged to attend. 

AUIS students attend Hult Prize start-up accelerator in the U.K.

  AUIS students Shady Atef (Engineering), Mohammed Nasih (Business), Medya Zana (IS alumna), and Shavin Hiwa (IT) are among a group of 50 teams spending some eight weeks in the U.K. this summer at the Hult Prize Start-Up Accelerator. Hult Prize bills itself the “world’s biggest engine for the launch of for-good for-profit  platforms” and brings together leading young innovators from around the world. At the summer start-up program, this entrepreneurial and multidisciplinary group of AUIS students will participate in workshops, team building activities, networking opportunities, and coaching and mentorship from business and innovation experts. Atef, Nasih, and Hiwa hope to use their experiences from the accelerator to grow their business, an energy-focused start-up that hopes to solve one of Iraq’s leading issues -- insufficient electricity. Check back for updates on the team’s progress this summer.
