PRIZES

The top 50 teams from around the world will be accepted in the Hult Prize Accelerator, taking place in the Hult Castle – London. For 8 weeks you will go through a rigorous curriculum that will transform your ideas into startups.

6 teams will avance to pitch at the United Nations hosted Global Finals.

One winner will receive seed capital of one million dollars ($1,000,000).

There are three ways to become part of the top 50:
1) win a regional final round
2) win a wildcard round or
3) win an in-country round.

There are two ways into a regional final, either you win an on-campus Hult Prize which may or may not be happening at your university, or you submit into the general application window.
Regional finals are taking place in the following cities: Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai, Toronto, Mexico City, Quito, Bogota, Melbourne, Lagos, Nairobi, Cairo, Tunisia, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore.

The wildcard rounds will kick-off immediately following the conclusion of the regional finals. More than one winning online round participant will advance to the summer accelerator programme.

In-country rounds may or may not be happening in your country. The Hult Prize National Programme winners will receive investment capital as well as a one-way ticket into the summer accelerator.

There are new programme funnels which may arise like Hult Prize Ivey, but those are closed events.

Note that while some organisers may accept applications from all around the world, you may still be required to travel to the host country in order to take part in the later stages of a competition for instance, or you may be required to live there for a period of time to take part in a funded programme (e.g. scholarship, incubator, accelerator).

Multiple host countries may mean that no travel is required.
