GSEA Nominations Now Open 

GSEA is the premier awards program for students who own or operate a business while attending college or university.

GSEA sees student entrepreneurs compete against peers in a national qualifying round to make their way to the GSEA Global Finals in 2020. The programme provides students an opportunity to learn from fellow entrepreneurs and form lasting relationships with both students and prominent entrepreneur judges. GSEA is a global success story and over the years, participating students have gone on to expand and build businesses, create thousands of jobs and generate millions in revenue.

In addition to being college or university level students, participants also have to be primarily responsible for a business that has been in operation for no less than six consecutive months.

Upon review of the applications, selected students will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to present their business and entrepreneurial journey in front of a panel of entrepreneur judges

The emerging champion from this round of the competition will proceed to the  Global Finals and will be in the running to win cash prizes and a bouquet of donated business products and services including web services, PR, consulting and more.
