WHAT IS THE HULT PRIZE?
The Hult Prize is a start-up accelerator for budding young entrepreneurs emerging from the world's universities. Named as one of the top five ideas changing the world by U.S. President Bill Clinton and TIME Magazine, the annual competition for the Hult Prize aims to create and launch the most compelling social business ideas--start up enterprises that tackle grave issues faced by billions of people. Winners receive USD 1 Million in seed capital, as well as mentorship and advice from the international business community.
