Message
from the Campus Director

"The most common bias about launching your own startup is thinking you are just not talented enough. But the thing is to innovate you shouldn't be a genius and make an absolutely new product from a scratch. Innovation is all about noticing something that nobody has ever noticed before you! Hult Prize allows you to apply your creativity to make a profitable business and change the world for the better at the same time. Why not give it a try while being a student?"

Creating jobs, stimulating economies,
reimagining supply chains, and improving outcomes
for 10,000,000 people by 2030.
