Start-up accelerator for social good

Responding to a challenge made by President Clinton and building on the success of previous Hult competitions (Hult Global Case Challenge) the Hult Prize has committed to launch a new wave of student social entrepreneurs. The Hult Prize has become THE program for budding social entrepreneurs, recently named one of the top five ideas changing the world by President Bill Clinton and TIME Magazine.

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.

Funded by Swedish Billionaire, Bertil Hult and supported by the Hult International Business School, the Hult Prize is THE program for budding social entrepreneurs. Each year, more than ten thousand college and university students from around the world apply to pitch their ideas at one of six regional events that take place in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai and online. Up for grabs is an opportunity to spend the summer in the Hult Accelerator – a world class center for innovation located in Boston.

Following the conclusion of their time working in the Hult Accelerator, each of the six winning teams then pitch their start-ups at the annual Clinton Global Initiative meeting, where President Clinton, along with CGI Meeting attendees select and award the winning team with a USD1 million prize.
