Competition for USA, Canada, and International teams of students at IHEs for the development of original enterprises to improve food systems. The purpose of the competition is to award a global startup prize for innovative and transformative ideas that will create jobs, stimulate economies, reimagine supply chains, and improve outcomes for populations throughout the world.
The Hult Prize Foundation transforms how young people envision their own possibilities as leaders of change in the world around them. With a global startup prize as its anchor activity, the Hult Prize has brought impact-focused programs, events, and trainings to over a million students globally, creating a pathway for youth everywhere to take action to build a better world.
In 2021 the Hult Prize is asking youth around the world to build viable food enterprises that will create jobs, stimulate economies, reimagine supply chains, and improve outcomes for 10,000,000 people by 2030.
The Foundation is challenging you to transform food from a bare necessity for survival into a vehicle for human wellbeing and prosperity. In order to do this, you will have to understand how our existing food systems work, and why they are failing humanity on a global scale. Together, the Hult Prize global community will reclaim the potential and power of the most basic and fundamental resource required to fuel humanity for the century to come.
