Global Talent 2018

Design Thinking Challenge

I was honored to be selected as one of the 1,000 global talents to contribute to accelerating breakthrough solutions for the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of #SDG2030. This opportunity came after a rigorous selection process involving 10,000 applicants from over 165 countries. Representing the Singapore University of Social Sciences, I joined forces with a diverse team comprising members from Singapore, China, USA, and Czech Republic.

Together, we developed a sustainable and scalable business idea known as "Sweet Hub" to address the issue of sweet potato waste. Our concept involved sourcing and selling sub-optimal sweet potatoes at reduced prices, aiming to achieve a zero-waste sweet potato inventory for farmers.

As the event concluded, we presented our solution to a distinguished audience, including investors, experts, mentors, and peers. This pitch session provided us with valuable feedback and insights from industry professionals, further enhancing the potential impact of our innovative idea.

Team Members: Alba Collart, Anna Strejcova, Angel Tan, Huanchen Yao, Lai Yao Hao.
