Makerere University has been selected to host a Ugandan edition of the Hult Prize, the world’s largest student movement for the creation of new social enterprises. The Grand Finale will be held on 9th December 2019 in the Central Teaching Facility 2 (CTF 2) Auditorium. The annual Hult Prize awards One Million US Dollars (UGX 3.8Bn) in start-up funding to the team of students that develops the most radical and breakthrough idea to solve one of our world’s toughest social challenges.
This year's theme: BUILDING STARTUPS THAT HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON OUR PLANET WITH EVERY DOLLAR EARNED.
The winner of the intra-campus event will automatically advance to compete in one of 25 regional finals happening around the world, and then move onto a summer business accelerator, where participants will receive mentorship, advisory and strategic planning as they create prototypes and set-up to launch their new social business.
