Our CEO, Steve Andrews, is in New York helping judge at the finals of the Hult Global Case Challenge. The HGCC challenges students from universities around the world to come up with sustainable business models and strategies to help tackle some of the world’s greatest social problems.
Our social enterprise, SunnyMoney, is one of three organisations that will benefit from this year’s challenge, as students seek to scale up our enterprise and help eradicate the kerosene lantern from Africa by 2020.

They’re all coming to do one thing. To give the pitch of their lives and walk away as winners of the 3rd Hult Global Case Challenge…”
