Haskayne wraps up 2017 business competition season with international victory in Dubai”

The Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary has outdone itself by snagging a huge win on a global scale at the regional finals in Dubai at the 2017 HULT prize, the world’s largest and most prestigious social enterprise competition. The Haskayne team will travel to Washington, D.C. in September to compete for the grand prize of $1 million to pursue their enterprise.

The 2017 challenge focused on improving the lives of 10 million refugees over the next five years.

“We won because we were on the ground and listened first-hand to the refugees,” says Bob Schulz, professor and faculty adviser. “We have a lot of experience in the field while the other teams did not have the expertise we do.”

There were over 50,000 entries from all disciplines and all academic levels. The applicants were short-listed to a total of 300 teams competing in five regions: Dubai, Shanghai, Boston, San Francisco, and London.

The presentation members of the winning team were William Akoto, EMBA'18, Medina Dehatee, EMBA'17, Frances Duahn, EMBA'18, and Richelle Matthews, BA’05. Onsite technical support was provided by Zeid Ayoub, BComm'17. The team was fearlessly led by Prof. Schulz.

“The people on our team have first-hand experience with this issue. Frances was a refugee in Uganda, William was born in Ghana, Medina moved from Tajikistan and worked for UN, and Richelle has over 10 years of international development experience in Africa and Bangladesh,” says Schulz.

“Every camp is different. Every country is different. So, one size does not fit all. You have to listen to the person on the ground to find a viable solution.
