Hult Prize Sophia University held “The Hult Prize OnCampus program” business contest
- Club & Circles
In 2022, Hult Prize Sophia University held “The Hult Prize OnCampus program” business contest.
The Hult Prize Foundation Competition is a global competition where university students develop their own social venture that tackles a different social theme each year.
The Hult Prize 2023 challenge ‘Redesigning Fashion’ aims to combat sustainability issues in the fashion industry. The Hult Prize competition is unique in the way for those who have little knowledge of the fashion industry and/or business to explore ideas and challenge themselves. On the final pitch day at Sophia University Hult Prize OnCampus round, thirteen groups presented their unique social venture.
The first place was awarded to team ‘Looply’, proposing the business idea that tackles fashion waste by up-cycling disposed clothing into textile paper shopping bags. Being selected by Hult Prize Foundation as 1 of 500 startups globally to proceed into the regional competition, in June 2023, Looply pitched their social enterprise to the Asia-Pacific round at Ming Chuan University in Taipei, Taiwan.
