Congratulations to Hult Prize Teams

A handful of teams from Judge Business School formed to participate in the annual Hult Prize 2015 that receives over 10,000 applications annually. This year’s challenge focuses on developing sustainable and scalable social enterprises to address the early childhood education gap in kids 0-6 years old.

There are six regional finals locations: Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai and Sao Paulo. Winners of a regional final will receive a one year membership into the Clinton Global Initiative and an opportunity to spend the summer at the Hult Prize Accelerator – an innovative incubator for social enterprise.

Our very own JBS teams have a very exciting two months of preparation before them as they have been chosen to compete in regional finals in San Francisco, London, Dubai and Shanghai.

Good luck to all and safe travels in March!

Silicon Valley Comes to Cambridge

Congrats to all who helped with putting together a great Silicon Valley comes to Cambridge event. The 3-day series of events in Cambridge, including panels, workshops and lectures on the theme of “start up to scale up” involved many opportunities for current and future entrepreneurs to learn from some of the most successful leaders from Silicon Valley and beyond.

Much-Belated Halloween Photos!

The 2012 MBA class enjoyed a Halloween full of pumpkin carving, Brazilian dance music and costumes both scary and clever.

The day began adorably with the MBAs, partners and families with some pumpkin carving at Judge where everyone had a chance to show off their carving skills. Later in the evening, the fun moved to the University Arms Hotel where everyone came dressed for the occasion as smurfs, skeletons, sushis and service men. Some Brazilian music courtesy of the Arco Iris kept the class moving on the dance floor and a costume contest revealed who had the scariest costume, the funniest costume and the cutest couple costume! The dancing then kept up at Life/The Place full a truly fun and festive Halloween!  (Photos below courtesy of Zhengyu Chen, Damon Sununtnasuk, and Emily Tabak).

Also, remember that MBAT is approaching as well. Europe’s largest inter-MBA sports event of the year is Spring 2013, but it’s not too late to begin preparing!  The event requires a large amount of funding to support travel, accommodation, equipment and more, so we’re asking for your help. Please reach out to former colleagues, companies, friends, etc. who may be able to help support this event. Contact Derrick or Luca if you need a sponsorship request letter.
