So many cross-campus collaborations @ last night’s UC Berkeley Campus Round for the $1M Hult Prize! The winner, Thrive Education, aims to disrupt diagnosis of learning disabilities and hails from Haas, Fung Institute for Engineering & UCB’s School of Social Welfare.

Runners up include Qodecom, from UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy & Haas, and CatalistX, from across UCB, an NSF I-Corps and LAUNCH.

Shout outs to Team Modi, an all freshman team + Roadmap, from the UC Berkeley’s School of Information.

This year’s challenge was solving youth unemployment. Thrive Education will move to one of five global regionals next spring.
