We acknowledge that we live and work on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River.
Hult Prize is the world’s biggest engine for the launch of for-good, for-profit startups emerging from university with over 2500 staff and volunteers around the world. In nearly a decade, the movement has deployed more than $50M of capital into the sector and mobilized more than one million young people to re-think the future of business as it continues to breed disruptive innovation on college and university campuses across 120 plus countries.
Hult Prize On Campus is an initiative to give an opportunity to deliver social change by bringing Hult Prize programs to University of Waterloo. As part of the On Campus Program, you will be able to train, educate and inspire students by building an impact community around On Campus events.
Eight finalist teams will compete for their chance to advance to the global arena. The winning team will advance to one of 15 regionals of their choice to continue their journey with Hult Prize. Prize money will be awarded to the top three campus finalists, thanks to sponsorship by ECL.
The topic for this year is Environmental Sustainability and Accountability.
"The Hult prize will challenge teams from around the world to build new businesses, to make positive contributions toward both the environment and economy, with the goal of reaching a million more consumers within a decade, in a way that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and reduces the threat of climate change. The prize is not simply looking for ways to make current business practices less environmentally damaging, but for transformative new models that make a positive net impact on the environment, with every sale completed, every dollar earned and every decision made." - Bill Clinton
