Hult Prize @ Hokkaido University
Let’s take part in Hult Prize, international student competition!

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.
The annual initiative is the world’s largest crowdsourcing platform for social good
and one of the planet’s leading forces for good.

Participants compete in local events organized on campuses around the world
or apply online to partake in the regional finals which are held
in five international cities around the world, including: Boston, San Francisco, London,
Dubai, Shanghai and on-line.
Winning start-ups from each city move onto the Hult Prize Accelerator for the summer
before attending the President Bill Clinton hosted global finals, which take place each September
at the Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting in New York.
Collectively, more than ten thousand students, representing more than 150 countries
around the world participate in the Hult Prize and spend over 2 million man-hours
on solving the world’s most pressing issues.
Through crowdsourcing, training, mentorship and funding
, the Hult Prize seeks to build and launch the next wave of social entrepreneurs.

The 2016 Hult Prize “President’s Challenge” is Crowded Urban Spaces and will focus
on economic inclusion, more specifically, doubling the incomes of the residents who live

products, services and capital by 2022.
This challenge was selected by President Bill Clinton and announced
at this year’s Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Annual Meeting in New York. Details.
