2014 The Hult Prize – Win US$1 million to Start a Social Enterprise

Deadline: November 18, 2013

How will you change the world with US$1 million in seed capital to scale your start-up? HULT International Business School & Clinton Global Initiative invites applications for the 2014 Hult Prize. The Hult Prize is a start-up accelerator for social entrepreneurship which brings together the brightest college and university students from around the globe to solve the world’s most pressing issues.

Do you have ideas to solve the biggest problems faced by billions around the world? Register for the Hult Prize and you can make your idea a reality with the help of USD1 million in seed funding. College and university teams are invited to build sustainable and scalable social enterprises to address non-communicable disease in urban slums.

Prize and Benefits

This year, more than 10,000 applicants will apply to the Hult Prize, and only 300 start-ups from around the world will move on to pitch their ideas at one of six global locations, including: Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai, Shanghai and São 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.


  • Students past or present from any college or university in the world are invited to form teams of 4-5. There are only two conditions:
    1) All participants must have a connection with the same school
    2) A maximum of one alumnus who cannot also be a faculty member of the school
