Tuesday, April 30, 2013
A team from Colorado State University College of Business won the Global Business School Network‘s 3rd annual MBA+ Challenge Video Contest, which invited business students from around the globe to submit videos showing how they are making a difference in the developing world through volunteer work, school projects, new enterprises or blossoming careers.
The winning video, MamaCarts – Increasing Food Security, is about empowering local communities to increase food security in urban slums. MamaCarts is a for-profit, food cart micro franchise that powers present supply chains to distribute complete, clean and delicious meals to lower income, urban markets. By purchasing nutritional foods in bulk from local suppliers, the price per meal is reduced. MamaCarts vendors complete the link between local suppliers and food insecure communities. By 2018, MamaCarts will tackle the core causes of malnutrition by annually delivering 1 billion affordable meals.
