AMMAN — The German Jordanian University (GJU) has been selected to host a local edition of the Hult Prize, a start-up accelerator for social entrepreneurship that brings together colleges and university students from around the globe to solve the world’s most pressing issues, a statement by the Hult Prize said.

The annual initiative is the world’s largest student competition and crowd-sourcing platform for the creation of new social businesses. Saja Badrana, a GJU logistic sciences student, and the Hult Prize Campus director made the announcement, noting that the annual prize awards 1$ million in start-up funding to the team of students that develops “the most radical and breakthrough idea to solve one of our world’s toughest social challenges”.

The winners of the intra-campus event will advance to compete in one of 15 regional finals happening around the world next March, the statement added.
