The Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA)

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. The deadlines depend on the country and are in October-November 2018.
