The Hult Prize at IOE has hosted orientations at almost all of its constituent colleges. The latest session was held at Sagarmatha Engineering College on 19th December. These engaging and enjoyable sessions give you all the information you need to compete in this year's Hult Prize.
In each orientation, the participants are given a short introduction to the Hult Prize along with anecdotes from previous participants and details about their journey. Queries from the audiences are addressed. Then, the interested candidates are called for team registration.
One of these sessions, held in Thapathali Engineering College was particularly interesting. There were custom stalls setup for the participants with fashion items like bracelets, embroideries, beads and so on which also match the theme of this year’s competition, “Redesigning Fashion”.
This event was also attended by a young entrepreneur of Nepal, Suraj Raj Pandey. Mr. Pandey is the CEO of Fibro, Nepal which is a well-known clothing brand around here. He delivered an engrossing discourse on the positive effects that a sustainable product has on the fashion business.
After the completion of these orientation sessions, the next step for the competitors is to attend the workshops on Entrepreneurship series of the Hult Prize.
The first mentorship session “Introduction to Entrepreneurship” is happening on Dec 24, Saturday. The guest speakers for the talk session are Rajani Gurung, co-founder and Operations Manager of Deego Nepal, and Sunny Rajopadhyaya, co-founder of Chyau Biotechnologies, co-founder and CEO of Ecoorb Ventures.
Totaling in 4 sessions, each of these is attended by professionals of various fields. Each one makes you more polished and a better candidate for winning the Hult Prize.
These workshops are very beneficial as they provide the participants with mentorship and advice on preparing for the Hult Prize. The participants can express their opinions, engage in discussion, and overall enjoy their path toward the Hult prize since these sessions are so fascinating.
They provide a huge advantage to the ones who plan on coming out at the top this year. Despite being led by professionals, these seminars are not at all scary. Since they are free of cost, there’s no reason to give up on this opportunity.
This year’s OnCampus program is supported by title sponsor Masta Kala, silver sponsor NMBCL, general sponsors Digital Ocean, Taskade, and Impact Hub, venue partner Entrance Cafe, hosting partner Protozoa Host, and security partner MSecurity.
These programs will soon lead up to the finale of the Hult Prize at IOE and the Hult Prize team has no plan of stopping anytime soon. Things have been running smoothly and the Entrepreneurship series is anticipated to proceed in a similar fashion.
