Hult Prize

What would you do with $1 million USD in funding to help change the world?

This is the question Hult Prize winners answer every year. Founded in 2009 and sponsored by Hult International Business School, the Hult Prize was the idea of MBA students at Hult, who wondered—what if we challenged young people to crowdsource ideas to solve the world’s toughest social issues?

“The Hult Prize makes us dream again. It makes us believe in a better world and want to work together to create it.” Dr. Stephen Hodges, Chairman, Hult Prize Foundation

The idea took off, and today, the Hult Prize Foundation is one of the world’s largest entrepreneurship engines to launch for-good, for-profit businesses. All over the globe, university students are challenged to create a scalable, sustainable, social enterprise. Students—representing universities from over 100 countries—work together to build teams, come up with new ideas, re-think the future of business, and pitch ideas for the chance to win $1 million USD in funding to make their project come to life.

In the almost 10 years since it launched, the Hult Prize has deployed more than $50M USD of capital into the sector, mobilizing more than one million young people to take action as it continues to foster disruptive innovation on college and university campuses.
