Energy & Clean Tech

The ECT Digest focuses on energy storage, future mobility and digitalization of the energy sector. We will also offer information of and access to the most prestigious events in the realm of energy and clean tech.

Hello readers, 
I am feeling extremely energized! Last Saturday, I was invited to the semi-final of Hult Prize Pakistan competition; judging the Startup Pitches related to this years’ theme: Harnessing the Power of Energy to Transform the lives of 10 million people. The level of enthusiasm, energy, and determination to transform the lives of millions of people; that I have witnessed in these University Students is beyond imagination. I am certain, it is the same that prevails among the youth of other countries; especially the emerging economies. Would be able to share about the winning ideas and teams after the Country Finals going to be held later this month. Did you witness the same in Hult Prize Competitions in your Country? Please share your experience and link to the information.

P.S The reason for sharing this here; how much potential we have as an emerging economy with a median age of 23.2 years of our youth population in Pakistan.
