President Bill Clinton’s 7th Annual Hult Prize Challenge is here with us. Last year, thousands of university students worldwide participated in the Hult Prize Challenge.
What is Hult Prize Challenge ?
The Hult Prize Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to launching the world’s next wave of social entrepreneurs. It encourages the world’s brightest business minds to compete in teams to solve the planet’s biggest challenges with innovative ideas for sustainable start-up enterprises. Annual Hult Prize winners can make their ideas reality with the help of USD1 million (about ksh. 100 milion) in seed funding.
How do you get into the Hult Prize Challenge ?
You will be asked to form a team of 3-4 students from your university and submit an application to participate at any of the locations. Alternatively, your university may be hosting a Hult Prize@ on-campus event, in which case you can fast track your team’s participation through competing in your local university edition.
You can view a preliminary 2016 timeline here, which outlines submission deadlines, finalist announcements and key event dates. To find out if your campus is hosting a local edition of the Hult Prize, visit Hult Prize at and see if your university is participating.
