A students team from the Department of Accounting and Finance excelled in the Hult Prize Competition in Doha, Qatar
The team “Granny’s Bag” was included in the top 6 out of 68 teams in the Hult Prize competition held by University of Doha on 11-13/3/2021. The team is consisted of first year students Lefteris Katsiadakis, Maritina Damanaki, Dafni Gkogkozotou and Fotis Athanatos.
The competition’s subject was food and how it can save the world. Granny’s Bag presented a pioneering aquaponics system placed in rooftop terraces for the production of organic fruits and vegetables including sideline minorities, like ex-prisoners, in the company’s workforce.
The students emphasise that assistance by Assoc. Prof. Leonidas Doukakis, Department of Accounting and Finance, and Assoc. Prof. Anna Zarkada, Department of Marketing and Communication, was crucial for the completion of the presentation. They also want to thank Dr Dimitra Tsiaklagkanou for helping them with legal issues.
