Join the Hult Prize As a Hult student you will have access to a wide array of Hult Prize activities: 1. Forming teams 5. Regional finals We hold mixers and speed-pitches for students who want to compete and are looking for a team. Hult campuses in San Francisco, Boston, Dubai, London, and Shanghai welcome students from universities across the world to compete in the regional finals. Regionals are also held by many other host universities in cities across the world. Many Hult students either compete in, or help organize, these regional events. 2. Exploring the challenge Information and ideation sessions as well as discussion groups are available to assist students to deep-dive into the challenge content and aid their challenge trajectory. 3. Developing ideas Workshops are held to help students develop their business ideas and polish their presentation skills. Team coaching is available. We encourage teams to seek mentors from within our faculty, many of whom are involved in the Hult Prize directly, including those who have been judges. 4. Internal competitions Campuses hold internal competitions, with the winning teams going on to represent Hult International Business School in the regionals. *Please note that support and activities vary from campus to campus. 6. The Hult Prize Accelerator Up to 40 teams from the Hult Prize regional finals and the Hult Prize national competitions are invited to attend an eight-week accelerator at Hult’s Ashridge campus over the summer, where experts and thought leaders help transform their ideas into viable business models. 7. Pilot project Most teams run a pilot project of their concept in a location around the world over the summer in parallel with the accelerator program. This gives them valuable feedback on their idea and how to refine the business model. 8. The Global Finals The best five to six teams from the accelerator are invited to pitch their idea at the Global Finals. The finalists pitch to a panel of world-renowned judges at the United Nations headquarters in New York. The winner gets a $1M USD seed investment to launch their business idea.
