EO Spain GSEA National Competition
This Tuesday Bcombinator hosted the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards national final! GSEA is a global competition for students who own and operate a business while attending college or university powered by EO (Entrepreneurs´ Organization). EO GSEA supports students entrepreneurs and their projects that require mentorship, connections and recognition to take the project to the next level of success. The qualifying competitions are held in countries and cities worldwide, and the 2020 Global Finals will be held in Cape Town, South Africa.
The National final in Spain was held in Barcelona at Bcombinator space, which welcomed 5 fantastic innovative projects. The members of jury were impressed by the level of each project, which made it a tough task to decide which one deserves the opportunity to go to the GSEA finals.
Following the decision of our jury Mehmet Karakus with his Freshy project got the 1st place and will represent Spain at the GSEA Global Final in Cape Town, as well he received a ticket for 4YFN, 1 year of coworking lounge and a remuneration.
Freshy is a grocery provider that transforms grocery shopping into a more convenient, more accessible and more sustainable experience, delivering products without any plastic packaging, all orders come reusable jars which after consumption get recollected, cleaned, refilled and resent to the customer.
The 2nd prize went to Germán Lahera with his Dedomema.ai project. He received a ticket for 4YFN and 1 year of coworking lounge. Dedomena.ai brings to the market SDG (Synthetic Data Generator), a platform that can provide accurate, statistically similar, synthetic copies of structured data, unlocking the power of AI.
The 3d place went to Paula Vera with her Escape the City project. She received a ticket for 4YFN and 1 year of coworking lounge as well. Escape the City is a different way to discover the city by the means of team activities, games and enigmas, a secret route through different cities and their unique corners.
The other two participants, Jimmy Gozalo with Around project and Ana Andreu Smart with Gochick project, demonstrated a strong knowledge of business fundamentals and their projects show a strong potential for future growth.
