McGill students use crickets for a business model

Published: 12 Mar 2013

A group of McGill students (Mohammed Ashour, Gabriel Mott, Shobhita Soor, Jesse Pearlstein and Zev Thompson) hope their plan to breed crickets for use as a viable food source will be a million-dollar idea. The five students will be up against teams from Harvard, MIT and Yale as well as other teams from around the world.

The McGill team has already won the regional final of the Hult Prize and will compete for the top spot in the fall. The Hult Prize is considered to be the Nobel Prize of business competitions. Sonali Karnick spoke with two of the members of the McGill team.
