Hult Prize

Desautels MBA students Mohammed Ashour, Jesse Pearlstein, Shobhita Soor, Zev Thompson, and Gabriel Mott, beat out over 40 teams, including Harvard, MIT and Yale, to win the Boston Regional Finals of the 2013 Hult Prize.

The Hult Prize is dedicated to launching the next wave of social entrepreneurs. With this year’s challenge centered on the global food crisis, the Desautels team’s business plan involves growing crickets into a viable food source.

This fall, they will compete against the four other regional finalists for a chance to win the grand prize of $1,000,000 in start-up funding. Judges will include former president Bill Clinton.
