$1M for World Change
1.4 billion people across the world don’t have access to electricity. Families lack affordable housing to keep them safe and sheltered. And children aren’t getting the right educational tools.
These are all factors contributing to the global poverty crisis. But they’re also issues that the collective brainpower of students around the world can help solve.
Our partner, the Hult Global Case Challenge, invites students from across the Net Impact network to participate in their annual competition. Their challenge strives to crowdsource innovative, game-changing strategies to tackle the world’s most pressing social problems—and it’s the largest competition of its kind.
Along with their partner, the Clinton Global Initiative, Hult is betting some of the most impactful solutions won't come from the C-suite, but from students all around the globe. They’re even putting money on the line to make it a reality: $1 million is being awarded to pilot the winning team's solution.
Want to participate?
As a participant, you’ll work on a case study provided by one of Hult’s nonprofit partners (One Laptop per Child, SolarAid, or Habitat for Humanity) and compete at one of Hult’s five regional competitions around the world: Dubai, Shanghai, London, Boston, or San Francisco. Winners will travel to the finals in New York and present their solution to an all-star panel of private and public sector executives.
You’ll walk away with valuable social innovation experience, connections to changemakers around the world, and maybe even a chance to see your idea impact the lives of millions.
The final application deadline is December 31, so don't wait to get started. Bonus: all your fees will be waived by referencing Net Impact on your application! Get started now »
