Hult Prize Greater Bay Area Innovation Challenge 2019

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.

Unleash Your Potential: Entrepreneurial values, design thinking workshops, and bright minds from various background are things you can expect to be intensively exposed to. 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.

Be Inspired: Delivered and neatly designed, the workshops would be led by Hult Prize and entrepreneurs from various fields. 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.

Go Big: Your ideas do not end here, but begin here. With a 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. Your ideas would not only be recognized, but be invested.
