Global Student Entrepreneur Awards 2019

Founded in 1998 by Saint Louis University, GSEA is now an Entrepreneurs’ Organization program.

The Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) is the premier global competition for students who own and operate a business while attending college or university.

Nominees compete against their peers from around the world in a series of local and/or national competitions in hopes to qualify for GSEA Finals.

Global Student Entrepreneur Awards support student entrepreneurs who require much-needed mentorship, recognition and connections to take their businesses to the next level of success.

  • VISION: Empowering student entrepreneurs to become the world’s most influential change makers.
