We wanted to give members of IE Community a chance to capture the spirit of Global Village by creating a new logo for the event. The selected winner will be given a free ticket to Global Village!  Please click here for the logo brief.  Submissions are due on April 30.  The winner will be notified on May 15.  Please e-mail all logo proposals with a short description of your design to Marana.Bayonon@student.ie.edu .

What is Global Village?

Global Village is a fair organized by IE students in collaboration with the school’s administrative team whose aim is to showcase the diversity that thrives on campus everyday by having food, performances and arts and crafts in the same place for all the attendees to enjoy.

What was last year’s Global Village logo and what are we looking to change?

The logo should capture the core values of IE and the spirit of Global Village!  Your proposed logo should celebrate the uniqueness and diversity of our student body with a focus on collaboration.  Last year’s logo can be seen below.

Don’t throw it away, it can be used another way

recyclingThere is nothing more liberating than disposing the stacks of print on demand course packs at the end of each term!  But let’s all make sure to do it in a responsible way!

From Tuesday, March 10th until the 17th, recycling bins will be available in the launch pad at MM31 for print on demand and other paper recycling.  A box per section will be available so let’s make this a friendly competition among the IMBA and other Master’s programs. Which section will come out on top as IE’s most environmentally friendly section!

DID YOU KNOW???

Recycling one tonne of paper saves up to 31 trees, 4,000 kWh of energy, 1.7 barrels (270 litres) of oil, 10.2 million Btu’s of energy, 26,000 litres of water and 3.5 cubic metres of landfill space.

hultLocal campus event calling entrepreneurs to create viable start-ups and compete for $1 million in start-up funding

The Hult Prize is the world’s largest student competition and start-up platform for social good. In partnership with President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Global Initiative, the innovative crowdsourcing platform identifies and launches disruptive and catalytic social ventures that aim to solve the planet’s most pressing challenges. Student teams compete around the world for a chance to secure US$1 million in start-up funding to launch a sustainable social venture.

The 2015 Hult Prize will focus on Early Childhood Education – a challenge personally selected by President Bill Clinton. The main issue we are tackling this year is Can we provide early education to ten million children under age six in urban slums by 2020?”

Ahmad Ashkar, CEO and Founder of the Hult Prize, attributes the success of the competition to the shift in the global economy and the millennial generation’s refusal to live in a world with inequality, “We are giving entrepreneurs from around the world a platform to innovate and revolutionize the way we think about servicing the poor.”

The winning team from the Hult Prize at IE Business School event will be fast tracked to compete at one of the six Hult Prize regional finals events around the world bypassing the general application for San Francisco, Boston, London, Dubai, Shanghai, and a TBD 6th location.

Last year, the 2014 Hult Prize regional finalist beat out 10,000 applications received from over 350 colleges and universities in over 150 countries. The Hult Prize regional competitions will take place on March 13 and 14, 2015 in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai and a TBD 6thlocation.

Following the regional finals, one winning team from each host city will move into a summer business accelerator, where participants will receive mentorship, advisory and strategic planning as they create prototypes and set-up to launch their new social business. A final round of competition will be hosted by the Clinton Global Initiative at its annual meeting in September, where CGI delegates will select a winning team that will be awarded the US$1,000,000 Prize by President Bill Clinton himself.

In the words of President Clinton, “The Hult Prize is a wonderful example of the creative cooperation needed to build a world with shared opportunity, shared responsibility, and shared prosperity, and each year I look forward to seeing the many outstanding ideas the competition produces.”
