Protrash was born due to an international competition for young entrepreneurs, Hult Prize. This is the most important competition for young social entrepreneurs int he world. Each year, it addresses a different challenge and the winning team gets $1 million USD to fund their business. The challenge this year is to duplicate the income of 1 million people living in urban crowded spaces by 2022.
We are currently part of the final 5 finalists from 25,000 applicants. We are proudly representing Mexico and Latin America and we will have the opportunity to present our business in the Hult Prize finals on September 20th in the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) , held every year in New York City.
We are very excited to have the opportunity to represent our country in an event of this magnitud, which has international presence with some of the most influential people in the world. We are sure we will do a great job representing Latin America, and hopefully bring the prize home in order to help millions of people who need us.
We know that we can help change the reality of millions of people starting in our country. We invite you to become part of this changing reality and become part of the Protrash community because with your help, we will achieve our goal faster!
