The Lingnan Hult Prize Committee has collaborated with the Office of Service-Learning (OSL) and Lingnan Entrepreneurship Initiative (LEI) to organize the first Hult Prize Competition at Lingnan University on 17th November 2018. The aim of this competition is to develop sustainable business solutions to help mitigate and solve youth unemployment problem, and to leverage on the knowledge of participants to address pressing global challenges.

All winning teams are enthusiastic to progress to the Hult Prize regionals.
