The Hult Prize is the world’s largest social impact competition. Run in partnership with the United Nations, student teams come together to compete to solve a pressing social issue by developing a scalable, sustainable social enterprise. Finalists pitch to a panel of esteemed judges, global business leaders, thought leaders, and change makers to win 1M USD and launch their enterprise. Past judges include former US President Bill Clinton, former Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard, and Nobel Peace Prize Winner Muhammad Yunus. Past challenges include food security, access to clean water, and affordable education.
All Hult students are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to give a global platform to their business ideas that will have a direct impact on society. Each campus organizes an internal competition to determine who will represent the school in the Hult Prize. Many Hult faculty also mentor student teams to help them develop their idea.
