On November 29, we successfully hosted the final competition of Hult Prize at Ming Chuan University. In just one month, fifteen teams produced all kinds of unique social business models to tackle the 2020 challenge:“Building startups that have a positive impact on our planet with every dollar earned”.
This year, the first place was won by four IC students with their fitness app idea that deals with deforestation problem. The second-place and third-place teams are mixed with students from Biotech Department(CHIA-LIANG HU and CHAO-WEI CHANG), School of Management, and IC. Both teams presented ideas to create positive impacts through innovative agriculture solutions. Tay Chun, captain of the first-place winner, said: “It was a very humbling experience to win the Hults Prize with my teammates. The whole experience brought us new perspectives and realized how important it is to be proactive to gain new knowledge. Also, I want to take time to appreciate all the professors and the committee for setting up the whole event for giving all of us an opportunity here in Ming Chuan.” Yes! Big thanks to many MCU professors for their generous help and support. Because of their coaching and support, more MCU students are able to take the challenge and perform their best! Now, the winners (more than one team) are going to take even bigger challenge at the regional rounds next year in Spring. They are all highly motivated to be able to go further. With continuous supports from school, they will make Ming Chuan proud again!
Lastly, IC students in the organizing committee did an excellent job this year demonstrating passions and professional quality. Those competent students are mixed with students from IBT and JMC classes. With appropriate succession, we could make Hult Prize a continuing tradition at Ming Chuan.
