UCL Philosophy Graduate Finishes Top 30 in Global Entrepreneurship Competition

13 December 2011

Chester Mojay-Sinclare

Chester Mojay-Sinclare, a recent UCL Philosophy graduate and now Consultant Entrepreneur at UCL Business, participated in the 2011 Global Student Entrepreneurship Awards.

He pitched his UCL-backed social enterprise, CharityCheckout.co.uk, to a panel of 12 judges at the New York Stock Exchange, last month.

Mojay-Sinclare’s participation in NACUE's National Varsity Pitch earlier this year, earned him a place as a Global Finalist and the UK’s representative in the competition. He competed in the Global Final with students and recent graduates from across the globe and finished in the top 30. As a young entrepreneur, Mojay-Sinclare went “head-to-head against the best student entrepreneurs in the world,” according to the GSEA website.

Mojay-Sinclare said it was a privilege to compete in the Global Finals, “I was competing against 30 entrepreneurs from 24 different countries around the world, many of whom were running businesses with multi-million dollar revenue, some while still studying at university. It was an inspiring experience and a privilege to compete with the other young entrepreneurs.”
