The Hult Prize competition is the worlds largest international case competition. After participating in the Hult Prize for the past 2 years as the team captain, one which the group came out as one of the top 10 teams out of over 25,000 for a business model that aimed to double the income of individuals making less than $2 a day, I have created an overarching guide that will guide future teams to being successful within the competition. The key is to focus on a few on a few key parts: building a team, the general timeline, research, brainstorming, finances, the presentation, and Q&A. There are also important tips to consider, as well as what not to do. While the guide revolves around the Hult Prize, it can also be helpful when looking creating a start-up company within the category of social entrepreneurship and pitching to investors.
