Hult Prize Invites CUNY Students to Make Fashion Sustainable

BARUCH COLLEGE–Baruch College’s Lawrence N. Field Center for Entrepreneurship launched its application for a university-wide competition to qualify for the 2023 Hult Prize.

The Hult Prize is an annual, yearlong competition that challenges university students from around the world to develop a for-profit venture. Described as the “Nobel Prize for students,” the competition is run in conjunction with the Clinton Foundation, a nonprofit organization led by former U.S. President Bill Clinton.

The upcoming competition tasked entrepreneurial-minded students with “redesigning fashion” to make it more sustainable. Clinton announced the topic during the final round of the 2022 competition, saying that “clothing is a basic need.”
