Are you Ready for the Hult Prize?


“The worst thing that can happen to anybody is to get up every day and start the day believing that every one of your tomorrows will be just like yesterday. Millions and millions of young people believe that today.” —President William Jefferson

If ever a quote perfectly defined how dangerously we are close to losing ambition in life, it is that one. Our generation is in an urgent need for motivation to dream big, especially since employment opportunities are highly competitive. The youth might feel that they are driven towards a bleak future or that there isn’t much to look forward to once they graduate.

Fortunately, there are organizations that seek to address international concerns pertaining to the youth and to find sustainable solutions to them.

The Hult Prize is a start-up accelerator for social entrepreneurship which brings together university students to solve the worlds’ most pressing issues. The Hult Prize Challenge for this year will address youth unemployment and seek new business models that can serve as a road map to help unemployed young adults.

Fortunately, Phoenicia University will be taking part of the Hult Prize Competition and will encourage students to create an all-inclusive campaign that would provide job opportunities for 10,000 youths.

As a previous participant in the Hult Prize Competition myself, I can say, and without any doubt, that the experience has strongly motivated me to encourage others students to compete. I am confident that there are new powerful ideas on the rise that can change the world we live in. As the Campus Director of the project, I urge my fellow capable and skilled peers to take part in this initiative and to aim to change the fate of 10,000 unemployed youths.

If your idea proves to be a success, the Hult Prize will offer you 1 million dollars to help you launch a start-up that would empower the world. With an entrepreneurial mindset, loads of dedication, hard work, and an undefeated spirit, you can be the change you want to see in the world.  

Hurry up and join Hult Prize PU before the mid of February. The clock is ticking!
