【SDGs】Calling all change-makers for Hult Prize @YNU

Having had an excellent debut in 2019, the organizing committee is once again looking for participants to compete and share their groundbreaking ideas. They are accepting team applications throughout October!We will be accepting team and individual applications until our extended deadline of November 13th Friday.

What is the Hult Prize?
The Hult Prize is the world's largest social entrepreneurial platform for using business to solve global social problems. Every year, more than 2 million students from around the world participate in the competition to generate ideas to solve global issues. The best idea is awarded one million dollars (approximately 100 million yen) to accelerate its commercialization, and it has been dubbed the "Student Nobel Peace Prize".

Hult Prize 2020-21 Challenge:
“Food for Good,” transforming food into a vehicle for change and creating a business that will help ten million people by 2030, by creating jobs, stimulating economies, reimagining supply chains, and improving outcomes for 10,000,000 people.
