Team MeasureMe.AI Qualifies

10th June 2022, Kathmandu

A team of 3 engineering undergraduate students from Nepal has won the Hult Prize Regionals-Kathmandu Summit and they have been selected for the Accelerator Phase happening in person in Boston, America from July 25th – to August 12th.

The team members are Pramish Paudel ( Pulchowk Campus, IOE), Garima Acharya (Pulchowk Campus, IOE), and Kobid Upadhayay ( Advanced Engineering College, IOE).

Hult Prize, referred to as the Nobel Prize for students, is a global competition where students from around the world are challenged to solve the World’s most pressing issues through social entrepreneurship.

The winning team (startup) will get $1,000,000 funding to bring their idea into reality. The team’s idea of MeasureMe.AI has risen above 1000s other ideas from India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Nepal at the regionals and they have been able to secure their place among the top 16 teams selected worldwide for the competition.

Previously, they had won the Hult On-Campus Event at Pulchowk Campus combating 110 other teams from 15 IOE affiliated campuses.

Their start-up, MeasureMe.AI, aims to improve the lives of people through the 3D mobile body scanning technology and solve the pressing issues of malnourishment in humans (malnutrition in underdeveloped nations like Nepal and obesity in developed nations like the USA) caused due to lack of accessible body monitoring tools. With their technology, body scanning, monitoring and tracking will be accessible and affordable.

In Accelerator Phase, they will be immersed in a 6-weeks hybrid program- a Digital Phase from June 20 – July 8 and an In-Person Phase from July 25 – August 12 in Boston, Massachusetts.

During this timeframe, they will be provided with high-quality opportunities ranging from mentorship from a global community of industry experts, working hand-in-hand with the Hult staff, and befriending like-minded young entrepreneurs like them from nook and corners of the world.
