The StartUpper Challenge Of The Year
Because ideas need energy to become something great, Total launches the Startupper Challenge in nearly 60 countries around the world.
This year, the Challenge took place in Pakistan for the first time and targeted every young local entrepreneur with an innovative project or idea that could make things change in the country.
After several selection steps and a pitch competition, our local jury announced the following Grand Winners of The Startupper of The Year Challenge 2019:
1ST PLACE - MR. OZAAL MUHAMMAD ZESHA ALLAH - CLASSNOTES
ClassNotes provides educational resources and data centric services to the students in Pakistan and MENA region, helping 200,000 students every month prepare for exams effectively by providing relevant educational resources and a better alternative to tuition and exam preparation centres. The project is grounded by AI technology, high quality content and ease of accessibility.
2ND PLACE - MS. BISMA ASIF - REUSE OF ORGANIC WASTE
The idea behind this project is to turn rotten fruits and vegetables into organic, natural foods and enrich them with nutrient fertilizers to grow healthy crops and to decrease land pollution. The project targets the agriculture sector and aims to help farmers to reduce their cost through the use of cheaper organic fertilizers.
3RD PLACE - MS. ANEEQA ALI - THE MAD HATTERS
The Mad Hatters is a female led platform for adventure seekers to get out of the daily grind and travel to some of the less explored areas of Pakistan for a rich cultural experience. The initiative aims to create awareness about the heritage and diversity of Pakistan, and in doing so, aid local communities. By making traveling convenient and safe for women, the project also looks to improve gender equality in public spaces and provide career opportunities to females in the tourism industry.
A huge congratulations to our winners who will get financial support, exposure and coaching for their project. We are proud of you!
