What is the Hult Prize?
The Hult Prize is the world’s biggest engine for the launch of for good, for-profit startups emerging from university with over 2500 staff and volunteers around the world. In nearly a decade, the movement has deployed more than $50M of capital into the sector and mobilized more than one million young people to re-think the future of business as it continues to breed disruptive innovation on college and university campuses across 100 plus countries.
Who can participate?
Students from any college or university in the world are invited to form teams of 3-4. You are considered a student if at the time of application submission, you have not yet graduated. Alumni and faculty are not allowed to be official team members.
Do I have to have an idea to participate?
No. An idea is NOT required to participate in the Hult Prize, as the objective is to build the next big start-up, not necessarily to identify it.
What is the Hult Prize OnCampus?
Hult Prize OnCampus gives you an opportunity to host a local Hult Prize event at your university, allowing the winning team to bypass the traditional application process and fast track their idea through one of 25+ regional final rounds of competition. The program allows more students to compete around the world, leading to more ideas and ultimately more start-ups, each poised for radical impact.
Who organizes Hult Prize OnCampus events?
Students. The program allows student leaders on campus to organize their own, localized version of the Hult Prize, using a turn-key tool kit. Students interested in becoming their Campus Director should sign up to receive more information.
What are the advantages of hosting a Hult Prize OnCampus event?
Local events provide the university student body an opportunity to bypass the general application round and advance directly into the Hult Prize Regional Finals while better preparing students for the next round of competition. Last year, five out of the six global finalists came from the Hult Prize OnCampus rounds. In 2017, the overall champion was a Hult Prize OnCampus winner.
