Hult Prize @ gives you an opportunity to host a local Hult Prize event on campus, allowing the winning team to bypass the traditional application process and fast track their idea through one of five regional final rounds of competition. The program allows more students to compete around the world, leading to more ideas and ultimately more start-ups, each poised for radical impact. For the past three years, we have seen the number of global finalists coming out of Hult Prize@ events growing rapidly. In fact, in 2015 and 2016, five out of six global finalists came from the Hult Prize@ initiative, and both the 2014 and 2016 Hult Prize Global Champions heralded from Hult Prize@ campuses.
