GSEA, a program of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), is the premier awards program for student entrepreneurs.

Over the years, participating students have gone on to create thousands of jobs and generate millions in revenue.
Eligible students are currently enrolled as an undergraduate student of a recognized college or university. Students need to be primarily responsible for the operation of a for-profit or social enterprise structured (revenue generating) business that has been operating for no less than six (6) consecutive months. Students can apply by filling out the online application at www.GSEA.org/apply.
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. National winner will be recognized as the country’s champion and will attend the GSEA Finals to compete with the world’s top student entrepreneurs and have a chance to win over US$400,000 in cash and donated business services.
About the Entrepreneurs’ Organization’s Global Student Entrepreneur Awards:
As the premier global competition for undergraduate students, the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) represents more than 1,700 of the prominent student entrepreneurs from more than 60 countries. Built on a mission to inspire students to start and grow entrepreneurial ventures, GSEA brings global visibility to pioneering student business owners. Since 1998, the GSEA, a program founded at the John Cook School of Business at Saint Louis University, has honored outstanding students who simultaneously attend university full-time while running their own businesses. The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) took on leadership of the GSEA in 2006 to offer student entrepreneurs access to a global network of mentors, resources and connections from the most influential community of entrepreneurs in the world. The Entrepreneurs’ Organization’s GSEA is generously supported by Thomas Franchise Solutions.
