The Hult Prize is a prestigious global business competition that challenges students to present products, services, technologies and other solutions to societal problems. This year’s challenge is “Redesigning Fashion.” All Syracuse University students are invited to pitch their idea on launching an innovative social venture in the clothing and fashion industry to make it more sustainable. Competitors will be asked to align their business pitch with one or more of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goalschoose an area of impact in the fashion industry’s value chain, form a team of 3-5 people (with no more than 1 team member from another university) and propose a solution with a measurable positive impact on people and the planet. Competition participants will give a five-minute pitch of their idea followed by questions from the panel of expert and innovative business professional judges at the University’s competition.

Winners of the campus competition will advance to a regional competition for a chance to compete with international student teams for an opportunity to work with world class mentors and pitch at the United Nations for $1 million in investment. Past Syracuse winners have gone on to compete in Toronto, Boston, and San Francisco.
