MONTREAL, Quebec. Hult Prize recently announced that McGill University has been selected to host a local edition of the Hult Prize, the world’s largest student movement for the creation of new social enterprises. The annual Hult Prize awards one million dollars in start-up funding to the team of students that develops the most radical and breakthrough idea to solve one of our world’s toughest social challenges.

The Hult Prize will unlock your hidden potential and take you heights you cannot imagine. Last year we sent 4 teams to the regionals, with 1 team making it to the Top 20 Internationally. Are you next?

In partnership with the United Nations, the Hult Prize is hosting college and university events around the world in search of the next game-changing start-up.  Justine Tupe will be leading the Hult Prize at McGill On Campus Program, and is confident that her peers have as good as chance as anyone to go all the way with this year’s Hult Prize.

One winning team from each host city will then move onto a summer business accelerator, where participants will receive mentorship, advisory and strategic planning as they create prototypes and set-up to launch their new social business.  A final round of competition will be hosted in September, where the winning team to be awarded the $1,000,000 prize.
