Hult Prize is a global initiative for budding young social entrepreneurs in partnership with the United Nations and the Clinton Global Initiative. Co-organized by Hult Prize Greater China and The Chinese University of Hong Kong (Shenzhen), the Challenge is a 3-day social innovation hackathon with a series of design thinking workshops, networking sessions, fireside chats and a grand competition.


Why you should join

  • In the final-day hackathon, you would also get the opportunity to pitch your ideas in front of well-known entrepreneurs, incubators, and venture capitalists. Join us and challenge yourself.
  • Throughout the three days, you could also gain the opportunity to network with 200+ young leaders and 40+ mentors and entrepreneurs from the GBA region and other places around the world. Come and build your network.
  • With strong support from incubators, co-working space providers, and various web services, you are able to turn ideas into reality. Also, sponsored and powered by Hult Prize Greater China and CUHK (Shenzhen), the top 3 ideas would be awarded RMB10,000 (Champion), RMB5,000 (1st Runners-up), and RMB3,000 (2nd Runners-up) respectively.
