The 2019 DTU Hult Prize Kick-Off
On January 19, the first Hult Prize competition to be held at DTU was kicked-off with presentations on ten specially selected Start-Up projects.
The competition is sponsored by the United Nations and the Bill Clinton Foundation and enables emerging young entrepreneurs from 1,200 universities around the world to present their Start-Up ideas. Their objective is to try to solve some of the most pressing international issues and they begin by competing to reach their regional finals.
