decade, the movement has deployed more than $50M of capital into the sector and mobilized more than
one million young people to rethink the future of business as it continues to breed disruptive innovation
on college and university campuses across 100 plus countries. The Hult Prize Foundation in partnership

Gambia on their ideas as they create prototypes and set-up to launch their new social ventures. A final round
of the On Campus competition will be hosted in December 2019, where the winning team would
