Dear Honorable Judge,

On behalf of the entire Hult Prize Foundation and our partners at the Clinton Global Initiative, we would like to extend our deep appreciation for your service as a judge in the 2016 Hult Prize@ Program.

You have joined an elite group of executives, government officials, non-profit leaders and entrepreneurs who are responsible for selecting the recipient of our annual USD1 million prize. You have had personal influence on the lives of countless young entrepreneurs who may have never before considered a career of impact.

Your encouragement, your insight, and your support have validated their ideas, fortified their confidence, and helped launch them on the path towards creating a new future and acting upon their vision for a better world. This year, we have accomplished a lot together, with global applications surpassing 25,000 and Forbes naming 8 Hult Prize entrepreneurs to their annual ’30 under 30′ list.

Your role is critical to these successes and the ones we will undoubtedly see from this year’s class of entrepreneurs. The journey for the Hult Prize will continue this March at five regional semi-final events, during which 1,200 shortlisted entrepreneurs will travel from around the globe to pitch their game-changing ideas in Boston, San Francisco, London, Dubai and Shanghai. One winning enterprise from each region will advance to the summer incubation program, where they will enter a 7-week bootcamp focused on rapid prototyping, pressure testing, and commercialization. At the end of summer, the teams will pitch their ideas at the Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting in New York City, where one team will be announced the winner of the 2016 Hult Prize.

We welcome your continued interest and support for the Hult Prize and our incredible network of global entrepreneurs. Please do not hesitate to reach out and contact us.

We are honored to call you a member of the Hult Prize family, and we know that this is only the start of a prosperous journey together.

Thanks and Regards,

Ahmad Ashkar

Founder and CEO Hult Prize Foundation
