Students’ Startup Wins CUNY-wide Qualifying Competition for Hult Prize

BARUCH COLLEGE–Teams of Baruch College students worked together to develop and pitch ideas for sustainable fashion ventures at CUNY’s university-wide qualifying round for the Hult Prize competition.

Four months after the competition was announced, five teams of CUNY students entered the Lawrence N. Field Center for Entrepreneurship on Feb. 24 to present their startups. Three teams of Baruch students were named the top three winners, with the five students who developed the startup Element were ultimately chosen to move on to the next round.
