Call For Teams: Hult Prize University of The Gambia On Campus Program

Hult Prize University of The Gambia is now recruiting teams of 3-4 students who will compete in the 2019/2020 On Campus Program on the Challenge: Building Startups That Have A Positive Impact on Our Planet With Every Dollar Earned. Students can now register on our website Application for the registration of teams opened on Saturday, 19 October 2019. 

Annually, Hult Prize awards one million dollars in start-up funding to the team of students that develop the most innovative and breakthrough ideas to solve one of our world’s toughest social challenges. In a decade, the movement has deployed more than $50M of capital into the sector and mobilized more than one million young people to rethink the future of business as it continues to breed disruptive innovation on college and university campuses across 100 plus countries. The Hult Prize Foundation in partnership with the United Nations has been called the “Nobel Prize for Students” and has been featured in a TIME Magazine Cover Story highlighting the “Top 5 Ideas Changing the World.” 

The Hult Prize University of the Gambia Organizing Committee in partnership with the Youth Empowerment Project (YEP) will be coordinating the Hult Prize On Campus Program at The University of The Gambia. Only University of The Gambia students in teams are eligible to apply and compete in the On Campus Program. 

Participants will receive mentorship, advisory, training and strategic planning from Start Up Incubator Gambia on their ideas as they create prototypes and set-up to launch their new social ventures. A final round of the On Campus competition will be hosted in December 2019, where the winning team would automatically advance to compete in one of the 21 regional finals happening around the world. 

Registration closes on Tuesday, October 29, 2019
