The Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) is the premier global competition for students who own and operate a for-profit business while attending college of university.
Nominees compete against their peers from around the world in a series of local and/or national competitions in hopes to qualify for GSEA Finals. Founded in 1998 by Saint Louis University, GSEA is now an Entrepreneurs’ Organization program.
EO GSEA supports student entrepreneurs who require much needed mentorship, recognition and connections to take their businesses to the next level of success.
EO helps student entrepreneurs by helping them interact with successful entrepreneurs.
Going head to head with other business owners and answering tough questions about their business to our judges helps competitors improve their pitch skills and enhance their ability to communicate the value proposition of their business.
Competitors will meet other student entrepreneurs from around the world, as well as Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) members and honored guests.
Competitors will receive local and national media attention for themselves and their business.
