The Hult Prize is a global social entrepreneurship competition tapping into student innovation to solve its most pressing issues. Each year, it challenges students from all over the world to work in teams and create social enterprises focused on finding a solution to one of these issues. These teams will eventually compete against each other for a chance to win US$1 million in start-up funding.
In the 10th year of the competition, the challenge is solving youth unemployment. More specifically, to “build a venture that will provide meaningful work for 10,000 youth within the next decade.”
The competition has been enormously successful since its inception with fourteen Hult Prize entrepreneurs being named in the 2016 Forbes 30 under 30 list. Oxford University has had a team reach the global finals, where they were one of six finalists, in both 2015 and 2018. The global final gave these teams the opportunity to pitch in front of several world leaders and accomplished entrepreneurs.
If you are interested in learning about the competition and potentially competing, please come to this event and meet others of entrepreneurial spirit!!
