The Hult Prize

(Updated 16 Feb 2023) The 2023 Hult Prize Call to Action is about creating a for-profit social venture in the fashion/clothing industry. Your idea must create a measurable positive impact on people and the planet and support the United Nations in meeting its SDGs by the 2030 deadline.

If you win your OnCampus Programme or are selected through the General Application, you will be invited to a Regional Summit. Here, you and your team will compete against other students from your region and pitch your business to a panel of regional judges.

With over a dozen virtual Regional Summits, you will meet a diverse new group of student entrepreneurs and mentors and receive resources that will help improve your team’s business.

If you win your Regional Summit, you will be invited to the Global Accelerator. With access to business experts, Hult Prize staff, and fellow entrepreneurs, your time at the Global Accelerator will give you the tools to continue turning your business into a reality as well as the confidence and network to be a life-long social entrepreneur.

At the end of the accelerator, you will pitch to a panel of judges who will decide which teams will present their business at the Global Finals.

You will pitch your business to a panel of extraordinary judges for the chance to receive funding from the Hult Prize Foundation to start your business and set you on the road to success.

Global Startup Prize: One million dollars ($1,000,000).

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.
