A Success Story: Representing Nepal in Global Arena
Advanced College of Engineering and Management (acem) proudly shares that Mr. Kobid Upadhyay successfully competed in the ‘Global Accelerator of Hult Prize Competition’ 2022 that was organized by Hult Prize Foundation, Boston, United States. Under the project name ‘MeasureMe.AI’, Mr. Upadhyay and two other engineering students represented Nepal for the very first time in this Global Accelerator Program. This remarkable beginning will surely inspire the students who also happen to be entrepreneurs. “Dreams are achievable with constant dedication and consistent determination,” Mr. Upadhyay shared recollecting memories from his recent experience.
According to him, the entire entrepreneurship journey was an effective source of learning, growth and connection. It was never about the end result but was about ‘learning in the process’; the joy of being involved & meeting new people, the sense of pride when your ideas can help overcome the existing problems. On top of that, a rising sense of responsibility towards the audience and the team was truly overwhelming.
“On the whole, The Hult Prize journey was one of the major checkpoints to the team and the members as well. The competition provided us with the huge opportunity to gain an abundant amount of knowledge and ideas in a very short period of time. ‘Entrepreneurs need empathy as much as the ideas as successful entrepreneurs always emotionally connect to their audience and the team because that’s what matters in the end.” Mr. Kobid Upadhyay stated based on one of the crucial lessons learned there.
“I am very thankful to the ‘Hult Prize Foundation’ for providing us with this opportunity. I am also deeply grateful to acem for the constant support during the event. Finally, I would also like to express my gratitude to Daraz Online Shopping, Nepal's largest e-commerce brand who made this journey possible and also provided necessary guidance as well as financial support throughout the journey. Furthermore, we also appreciate the effort and financial aid provided by the American Society of Nepalese Engineers. This team also helped to broaden our networking for further innovation and research activities.
The journey was incredible. Hence, our many thanks goes to everyone, also to the ones behind the spotlight. Even a small gesture of help in one way or the other lead us to represent Nepal in an international arena” Mr. Upadhyay asserted.
