Competition Leads Five Penn Students to Successful Social Entrepreneurship

The University of Pennsylvania issued the following news release:

A year ago, what started as a "crazy idea" among five University of Pennsylvania students in the off-campus apartment of senior Josh Tycko has turned into a budding social entrepreneurial business that is changing lives - theirs and those of thousands of children in India.

At the time, group members Eric Kauderer Abrams, a mathematics major from Englewood, N.J., and Thoba Grenville-Grey a philosophy, politics and economics major from Cape Town, South Africa, were about to graduate. Tycko was approaching his final semester, and Spencer Penn was completing his undergraduate degree at Wharton and was about to start his final year in Engineering's robotics master's program. Along with Morgan Snyder, then a sophomore, the group had often talked about their wish to take what they'd learned at Penn, harness collective expertise across the University and design a scalable social enterprise that could, says Tycko, "do something good, something that mattered." And all were thinking "What next?"

"What," became the Hult Prize. Tycko, a biological and mathematics major in the School of Arts & Sciences from Demarest, N.J., had learned about the prize through another friend.
