Under the supervision of An-Najah Business Innovation and Partnership ‎Center (NaBIC), the Hult Prize Group at An-Najah University concluded the ‎activities of the Hult Prize Introductory Exhibition. The exhibition aimed to ‎introduce the University students to the Hult Prize and the application ‎process. ‎


The exhibition was launched by Mr. Eyad Al-Aqra, Director of Students' ‎‎Affairs at the University. Mr. Aqra said the Deanship of Student Affairs is ‎going to work hand in hand with An-Najah Business Innovation and ‎Partnership Center (entrepreneurship hub) to promote the social ‎entrepreneurship among the University students.‎

Mr. Thabet Raddad, Representative of NaBIC's Director pointed out that ‎An-Najah Business Innovation and Partnership Center aims to promote a ‎culture of innovation as well as social entrepreneurship among university ‎students. He added:" The Center will ensure that the necessary conditions ‎are provided for students to participate in the Hult Prize On Campus ‎program. This program aims to prepare and allow students to compete with ‎their startups internationally throughout a journey that allows them to gain ‎funds along the way so they can maximize the impact of their startups".‎

The two-day exhibition included ice-breakers activities and games, and ‎booths through which the students were given an overview of the Hult Prize. ‎

The Hult Prize is a global social entrepreneurship competition tapping into ‎student innovation to solve its most pressing issues. Each year, it challenges ‎students from all over the world to work in teams and create social ‎enterprises focused on finding a solution to one of these issues. These teams ‎will eventually compete against each other for a chance to win US$1 million ‎in start-up funding.‎

It aspires to promote entrepreneurship and enable students to use it in ‎solving global challenges. Also, the Hult Prize aims to provide life changing ‎education about entrepreneurship and transformative experiences for the ‎on-campus students, and to provide trainings and workshops for the ‎students about the entrepreneurship and to help them adapt it in their lives ‎so everyone can be able to pitch their for-good and for-profit startup ideas ‎in a final competition by the end of the program fuelled with social ‎responsibility; ideas that might be launched in the future to create a great ‎impact. ‎
