Hult Prize 2024

A group of students from the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) has set the stage for the Hult Prize 2024, hosting its OnCampus event on January 29.

The OnCampus program kickstarts the annual US $1,000,000 competition, engaging student volunteers, or Campus Directors, to organize training programs and community events centred around this year’s Hult Prize Challenge.

UPSA has concluded its OnCampus program, selecting the winning team, EcoSynergy Network, comprising Claudia Obeng Agyemang, Grace Korkor Wortey, Hannah Nchidebon Johnson, and Samuel Mensah.

Their outstanding pitch earns them a spot in the regional competition, competing internationally for a chance to collaborate with renowned mentors and compete for the $1,000,000 Grand Prize.

Post-regional summits, victors proceed to the Global Accelerator, a pivotal step refining and advancing each team’s social venture, culminating in the grand finale in London, where six teams, including EcoSynergy Network, pitch their ideas before esteemed judges for a shot at the US$1 million Grand Prize.

Mr. Michael Ackon, UPSA Campus Director, shared, “Putting this competition together was a challenge, but witnessing the passion and dedication of our students makes it all worthwhile. We are confident that EcoSynergy Network, or an equally strong team from Ghana, will make it to the finals.”
