Description

Startup Weekend Energy Edition

Energy is the lifeblood of human society. By creatively harnessing energy we can transform it into clean water, food, jobs, and connectivity. The world has enough latent capacity for energy innovation to shift the trajectory of global development. The world needs more disruption that taps into those energy innovations to accomplish a second transformation: the transformation of lives. Thus, aligned with Hult Prize 2018 Challenge, the theme of Startup Weekend Energy Edition is an invitation to find and discover energy innovations that can be scaled to improve the lives of millions. The eligible winning team will be invited to Hult Prize National Final.

Note: According to Hult Prize requirements to be eligible for the National Final, the winners have to be a team of 3-4 current students (undergraduate & postgraduate) from the same university. We do not place limitations on team composition for the Startup Weekend, as long as winners make themselves eligible in the end.
