Club Hult Prize

In 2009 Hult International Business School MBA student Ahmad Ashkar founded a company to give his then peers around the world a platform to have sustainable, profitable impact.

He later convinced Hult’s President, Dr. Stephen Hodges to begin hosting startup events on each of Hult’s five global campuses around the world with a focus on the creation of a new kind of business which was dubbed, “the impact enterprise.”

One year, and one meeting with BertilHult later, the Hult Prize Foundation was born.

Today, the Hult Prize is one of the world’s most acclaimed entrepreneurship programs operating on more than 1500 university campuses in 121 countries and has become a benchmark startup challenge for social entrepreneurship.
