President Bill Clinton Announces the Hult Prize at the Clinton Global Initiative
President Bill Clinton delivers a Commitment Announcement on behalf of the Hult International Business School and the Hult Prize at the 2012 Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting in New York City.
Stephen Hodges, President of Hult International Business School and Ahmad Ashkar, CEO of the Hult Prize accept President Bill Clinton's Commitment on stage during the plenary session about the future of food.
The Hult Prize is a start-up accelerator for social good. Dedicated to launching the next wave of social entrepreneurs through identifying, funding, mentoring, advising and launching new social businesses.
In partnership with President Clinton and the Clinton Global Initiative, the Hult Prize has created the world’s largest student movement for social impact and the world’s largest crowdsourcing platform, dedicated to solving the most pressing social challenges on the planet.
President Clinton has personally selected this year’s challenge: the Global Food Crisis. Nearly 1 Billion people in the World are Hungry, that is over 1 out of every 4 children. Ironically, our global economy produces enough food each year to feed everyone, however more than one-third of the food generated for human consumption continues to be lost or wasted.
