Aspire Food Group Wins Hult Prize for Innovative Social Entrepreneurship Idea

The 2013 Clinton Global Initiative challenges student teams to create a social enterprise that will surpassingly increase food security for urban slums by 2018.

The challenge lured 11,000 students from 350 universities across 150 countries this year, and six student teams remained to vie for the Hult Prize. In the end, a panel of eight judges including Muhammad Yunus, the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner and founder of the Grameen Bank, Ertharin Cousin, the executive director of the United Nations, and Premal Shah, the co-founder and president of Kiva, chose Aspire Food Group,  a team from McGill University in Canada, who aspire to use insects to address the challenge as the winner.
