How it works

The programme consists of a series of locally-hosted competitions for student entrepreneurs attending a recognized college, Fachhochschule or university.

The competitions are held in a live setting, requiring qualified student entrepreneurs to make a formal presentation to a panel of judges.

The panel is made up of leading entrepreneurs, business executives, college/university campus leaders, members of the media and past EO GSEA Finalists.

The judges then ask questions and evaluate the student entrepreneurs and their businesses against the specific judging criteria, as well as provide constructive feedback.

Winners are selected based on the students’ scores from the specific judging criteria.
