Middlesex University Dubai is thrilled to invite its students to begin to pitch ideas for The Hult Prize (2020). 


What is The Hult Prize?

The Hult Prize is an international annual competition for undergraduate and post-graduate students. The event is endorsed by no less than former US President Bill Clinton and changes its theme year on year to challenge students to create business ideas aligned to one of seventeen Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs). For 2020, the theme challenge is FOOD FOR GOOD. 

The winner of the competition is awarded through their university a $1M grant to take the idea into reality and start changing the world according to their vision.
