In 2009, the Greater China joined global section of the Hult Prize, and the Greater Bay Area in China is one of the main areas the Hult Prize focuses on. In 2018, the Chinese University of Hong Kong (Shenzhen) and the Hult Prize worked together in the "2018 Greater Bay Area Hult Prize Challenge", "2018 Hult Prize OnCampus Challenge", "2019 Greater Bay Area Hult Prize Challenge", and "2019 Hult Prize OnCampus Challenge", and "2020 Hult Prize OnCampus Challenge", which attracted 500 outstanding innovation-focused students from over 25 higher education institutions in the Greater Bay Area in China, and the events were broadcast over 1 million times.
