The Entrepreneurs’ Organization’s Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) is the premier global competition for student entrepreneurs who actively run a business. EO GSEA nominees compete in qualifying competitions for the chance to advance to the Global Finals, held in May 2016 in Bangkok, Thailand. With more than 1,700 competitors from more than 30 countries, EO GSEA is an exclusive opportunity for student entrepreneurs to make connections, find resources, and grow their businesses!
The EO GSEA Competition this year is combining forces with UCLA and USC Blackstone LaunchPads. We are inviting selected teams to pitch on Thursday, February 4 at the UCLA Blackstone LaunchPad from approximately 1:30 to 6:00 pm. You must be a college undergraduate, or if a team, the CEO leader would need to be an undergraduate, in business for 6 months, have some sales/revenues ($500), but doesn’t have to have profit (yet). There are only 6 slots available to pitch. The top team will then go to Nationals in Miami (March 2-3) with a shot to pitch in the Global Finals in Bangkok, Thailand (May 12-16). That’s right, a chance to expand your business on the international stage!
The deadline for your application is Friday, January 29 and the pitch event will be on Thursday, February 4 between 1:30 – 6:00 pm. This will be a good learning opportunity for those of you who will be doing their first pitch and a great opportunity to gain exposure for your company.
