CHALLENGE YOURSELF TO COMPETE WITH OTHER STUDENTS IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF ENTREPRENEURS THAT HAD TAKEN YOUR SAME PATH
If you are a university student and you have a startup or an entrepreneurial project, this is your great opportunity to make it known, submitting it to a jury of entrepreneurial experts, and accessing the possibility of presenting it in the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA).
GSEA is a program of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), an organization dedicated to fostering and supporting entrepreneurship based in more than 50 countries, 146 cities and with more than 12,000 members around the world.
The last two final of the GSEA, held in Toronto, Canada 2018 and Macau, China 2019, were students who won the semifinal of Barcelona who represented Spain.
Now you have the opportunity to follow that path and reach the final of South Africa 2020!
