For the energy category, the Hurt Global Case Challenge is partnering with Solar Aid: students are competing to come up with the best ideas that will help SolarAid sell 1 million solar lights in 2013.
The challenge will award 1 million USD in seed capital to pilot the winning ideas in each category.
Students will present their innovative ideas at one of the regional finals in London, Shanghai, Boston, San Francisco and Dubai, 24-25 February.
The winning teams for each category will then meet for a final in New York City in April and present their solutions to a world-class panel of executive judges.
Winning solutions from each track will be announced as commitments to action at the annual Clinton Global Initiative Meeting, in September.
