Be a part of the world's largest competition for social entrepreneurship

For the first time ever, student association GEM ONU is organizing the HULT PRIZE at GEM, the world's largest competition for social entrepreneurship. The grand prize? ... 1 million dollars!!! 
One team of GEM students will be chosen to go to London for the semi-final where they'll compete with teams from around the world for a spot in the finals in New York. 

This year the theme of the Hult Prize is "Harnessing the power of energy to transform the lives of 10 million people." Each team will be required to pitch an idea around this theme. 

We need YOU to be a jury member on Saturday, November 25th, 2017 to help us choose the winning team !
We are looking for GEM alumni with experience in entrepreneurship, energy, social responsability, business management, or innovation. 

Join the registered jury members:

  • Anne-Lorenne VERNAY : Assistant Professor at Grenoble École de Management
  • Yildiz THOMAS : Research Director at CNRS France
  • Emmanuelle PAULIAC-VAUJOUR : Laboratory Chief at CEA

Your role will be to help select the winning team who will represent GEM in London for the semi-final. You will be given a judging rubrique created by the Hult Prize to help you evaluate each team that presents a pitch.
You will also receive a certficate signed by the CEO of the Hult Prize as a thank you for your commitment as a jury member. 

Each team will have 8 minutes to pitch their idea and you'll have the opportunity to ask them questions if needed. 

After all the teams have finished pitching, you'll deliberate with your fellow jury members to determine the winner to announce during the closing ceremony. 

The winning team and the jury members will be invited to a celebratory dinner. 

Thank you in advance for your collaboration on this project promoting social entrepreneurship.
