The Hult Prize @ De La Salle University Grand Finals is drawing near! The winning team of this quarterfinal round of the annual USD 1,000,000 Hult Prize will finally be determined on December 11, 2015.

The Hult Prize is coming to De La Salle University (DLSU) and it is led by campus director Darrel Francis Luistro, a graduating Financial Management student.
