Hult $1,000,000 Global Case Challenge
|Date:||26 April 2012 - 26 February 2012|
|Location:||New York City, 09:00 - 17:00|
The 2012 Hult Global Case Challenge will be themed around Global Poverty. Under the Global Poverty umbrella, three subject social challenge areas will be tackled through respective individual tracks of competition across five cities. The final will be held on April 26th in New York City, where $ 1,000,000 in seed capital will be awarded to the winning teams.
The aim of the 2012 Hult Global Case Challenge is to drive solutions around those key social areas, which we believe have the greatest net impact on global poverty. Through collectively overcoming social challenges in education, energy and housing, it is our belief that we are undertaking global poverty on a grass-roots level. Through what has become the world’s largest crowd-sourcing initiative dedicated to solving global social challenges, the Hult Global Case Challenge seeks ideas and solutions from the world’s best and brightest future business leaders that will cause a step-change in the vicious global poverty cycle.
The Hult Global Case Challenge will be held simultaneously around the world through a multi-tiered, international competition platform. Through a call for applicants, teams will be selected to compete at one of five international cities: Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai and Shanghai. A sixth site will be facilitated virtually, via Facebook, for those participants whose economic means restrict them from attending one of the five physical competitions.
The winning team from each track, per city, and the virtual competition will advance to an all-expense paid global final in New York City, where each team will be given the opportunity to present their solution to a world-class panel of executive judges.
A total of $ 1,000,000 in seed capital will be awarded to the winning teams.
