Message from Campus Director


"It's not everyday that you have an opportunity to change the world. A team of you will be representing The University of Tokyo at the upcoming Hult Prize Regional Finals happening on March 12, 2016. The winner will get sponsored to represent us at either San Francisco, Boston, London, Dubai or Shanghai. My team represented the University of Tokyo in the Hult Prize Regional Finals in Shanghai in 2016, and it was an experience that changed my life. I gained the skills needed to become an entrepreneur and met amazing individuals. This is why I want to bring the opportunity to all University of Tokyo students. This is our chance to show the world what UTokyo is capable of. For the first time the Hult Prize@ will be coming to our campus. Do you have what it takes to change the world?"
