ISB Alumni Team wins Hult Prize, $1 million funding from Clinton Foundation
A group of five alumni from the Indian School of Business (ISB) won the prestigious Hult Prize and a USD 1 million funding support from the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI). The prize was given by the former USA President, Bill Clinton and Muhammad Yunus, founder of the Grameen Bank, at a high profile event held in New York City on September 24 evening.
The winning team- Nano Health- comprised of Aditi Vaish, Ashish Bondia, Manish Ranjan, Pranav Kumar Maranganty, and Ramanathan Lakshmanan who participated in the competition earlier this year, as students of the Class of 2014 at the ISB Hyderabad.
Ajit Rangnekar, Dean, ISB was present at the global event and shared the historical moment with the team. Congratulating the Nano Health team, he said, “It’s a proud moment for all of us at ISB, as our alumni team was the first ever entrant from India into the global finals. This is a culmination of the efforts of the students, supported by the faculty, the Max Institute of Healthcare Management at the ISB, and everybody associated with the team.”
The objective of the HULT Prize, the largest student business plan competition in the world, is for teams to design a social enterprise – an annual challenge set by former US President Bill Clinton. ‘Solving Non-Communicable Diseases in the Urban Slums’ was the challenge for participants this year.
All teams had to propose solutions which would impact at least 25 million people in urban and semi urban areas. The ISB group competed against teams from the USA, Latin America, the Middle East and China.
Nano Health has received support from industry and the Telangana government to implement their business plan. They have recently partnered with GVK Biosciences' proprietary HEART (Health Emphasized Analytical and Reporting Tool). The Honourable Minister for Information Technology and Panchayat Raj, Government of Telangana has also offered to extend support to the Nano Health team.

Questions related to Indian School of Business, Hyderabad Campus
Why is ISB Hyderabads fees so high? Is it because of brand name or what? If someone could please tell. Regards, Snehansh
Yes, the fees are high due to the facilities provided, the faculty, the infrastructure and the quality of the learning experience.It is entirely worth paying higher fees and going to the Indian School of Business because it is a fantastic brand and has earned outstanding rankings. Adding on, the hostel fees differs according to the room, it can be like around Rs.2- 3 LPA. For financially disadvantaged students, ISB also provide scholarship( of around 5 Lakhs) and those students who are currently working overseas who are planning to move back to India will waive Rs.5-10 Lakhs. Besides having great brand, many students don't opt for ISB, because investment is sometimes not equal to return on investment. This is because average CTC salary package offered to the students here was around Rs.19-20 LPA.
