HULT aims to identify and launch the world’s next wave of social entrepreneurs by encouraging students from around the world to compete in teams to solve the planet’s biggest challenges with innovative ideas for sustainable start-up enterprises. Annual Hult Prize winners can make their ideas reality with the help of USD $1 million in seed funding, as well as mentorship from a network of global leaders and changemakers.

This year’s challenge: For us, by us youth unemployment: Build the foundations of a venture that will provide meaningful work for 10,000 youth within the next decade.

Award: $1 million dollars to implement your idea, mentorship and business support for your start-up.

Addressing the global youth challenge means starting anew. New ideas. New business models. New technologies. New mindsets. For the Hult Prize 2019, we’re not just looking for companies. We’re looking for new ways to organize society that will create large-scale opportunities for youth to engage in meaningful work Your venture can be of any type, in any industry. As in previous years, you will need to envision and launch a business that can scale up—specifically, by growing to have a large-scale positive impact on society. Unlike previous years, however, your venture will also need to scale out to provide meaningful work for 10,000 youth. Your impact will be greatest if you have a plausible strategy to reach disconnected youth—that is, those currently not in the workforce, in formal educational programs, or receiving training. To succeed in this challenge, you need first to understand the barriers youth face in connecting to meaningful work and then, most importantly, to come up with strategies to overcome those barriers—thereby enabling youth to create value for themselves and others. In this section, we describe some strategies for overcoming barriers that

include an array of potential businesses.
