Submission + - Cricket Reactor Inventor Says $1mil Prize Winners Stole His Work (huffingtonpost.ca)

An anonymous reader writes: A group of Montreal MBA students took home this year's million-dollar Hult Prize, winning a competition for socially innovative business ideas that calls itself "one of the planet’s leading forces for good."

But now the ethics of the winners and the prize committee are being called into question. McGill PhD researcher Jakub Dzamba says that after he supplied the idea and design behind their pitch, products of years of development work, the team reneged on its promises to make him a partner and is instead taking credit for his work. Apparently, Hult knew about the issue before it awarded the prize.
