US$1,000,000 in start-up funding

Moving forward with the 5th annual Hult Prize, thousands of university students worldwide will team up to create start-ups aimed at solving an issue faced by billions in need. More than 10,000 applicants will begin the journey, and only 300 start-ups from around the world will move on to pitch their start-up ideas at one of six global locations, including: Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai and Sao Paulo. Up for grabs is the coveted Hult Prize which comes with US$1,000,000 in start-up funding.  While there is only one winner, each regional champion will get to spend the summer inside of the Hult Prize Accelerator —an innovative incubator for social enterprise and will receive a one year membership into the CGI.

How to participate?

Form a team of 4-5 students from your university and submit an application to participate at any of the six regional finals locations held in: Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai and Sao Paulo.
