A Ground-Breaking Approach to Impact
6 Pillar Foundation

Inspire

Refined Over
a Decade

Since 2009, the Hult Prize Foundation has invested US$100M into youth impact. Inspiration is where we start, instilling confidence and aspiration into program participants and organizers whilst energizing local ecosystems. Operating on 3000+ college and university campuses across 121 countries, our global team of more than 50,000 student organizers, staff and volunteers ignite change from the ground up.

Educate

We teach young people how to discover their own possibilities for change through impact education

Recruited students join the movement and are enrolled in an intensive, precision based impact education and leadership curriculum. They are taught the fundamentals of an impact enterprise, idea mapping, startups, how to sell, communicate and how to be leaders of change in the world around them. Learning opportunities never stop with guided seminars, workshops, speaker events and dedicated mentoring and coaching. Students are transformed into impact centered and value creating agents of change.

Action

Without knowledge action is useless and knowledge without action is futile

Students enrolled in our programs complete their learning by doing. Some choose to create their own startups and compete in local, national or regionally organized pitch events, while others take on committee roles in sales, marketing, design or content management and delivery. In 2020 alone, our community organized more than 3,000 events across 121 countries giving more than a quarter million youth around the world an opportunity to create impact. Top startups emerging from our programs are invited to participate in our flagship US$1,000,000 global program.
