Adam Kubina, a student of International Relations and European studies at the Metropolitan University of Prague, has recently won the best idea at the National Chengchi University of Taipei, Taiwan. Adam took part with his team in the Project of Human Dignity, the planet’s largest student competition to solve the world’s toughest challenges, with a prize of US$1, 000, 000. For the current year 2017, the challenge is “Refugees – Reawakening Human Potential”, which will focus on restoring the rights and dignity of people and societies who may be, or are forced into flight due to social injustices, politics, economic pressures, climate change and war. This challenge was selected by President Bill Clinton and announced at the 2016 Hult Prize Finals and Awards program in New York. The Hult Prize Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to launching the world’s next wave of social entrepreneurs. It encourages the world’s brightest business minds to compete in teams to resolve the planet’s biggest challenges with innovative ideas for sustainable start-up enterprises. Annual Hult Prize Winners receive USD1 Million in seed capital, as well as mentorship and advice from the international business community.
Now Adam finds himself in the top 100 teams out of 22, 000 teams worldwide and going to the second round to Dubai or Hong Kong. It is our highest pleasure to congratulate him and support him in continuing on his triumphant journey.
