Energy is the lifeblood of human society. By creatively harnessing energy we can transform it into clean water, food, jobs, and connectivity. The world has enough latent capacity for energy innovation to shift the trajectory of global development. The world needs more disruption that taps into those energy innovations to accomplish a second transformation: the transformation of lives. The 2018 Hult Prize is an invitation to student teams around the world to find and develop energy innovations that can be scaled to improve the lives of millions.
2018 Challenge: Transform – Harnessing the Power of Energy to Transform the lives of 10 million people
The first step is to complete the General Application with your team. Your application is not based on an existing idea, or one that you may have come up with for the challenge. Unlike any competition in the world, the Hult Prize moves teams into the regional finals that have the potential to create a dynamic and disruptive start-up based on their team experience and makeup. Regional Finalists are announced the first week of January, giving you and your team a solid two months to complete your pitch. Top applications are made up of multi-cultured and multi-disciplined teams.
