October 2018 – The Pune chapter of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO), the world’s leading peer-to-peer network of successful business leaders has begun accepting applications to this year’s qualifying rounds of the Global Student Entrepreneurs Awards (GSEA). Local chapter, EO Pune today announced that it will be hosting the Local Qualifying Competition on the 5th of January, 2019.
GSEA is a premier awards program for students who own or operate a business while attending college or university. Student entrepreneurs compete against peers in a series of local and national qualifying rounds to make their way to the global finals that will be held in Macao, China in April 2019. EO’s GSEA program provides students an opportunity to learn from fellow entrepreneurs and form lasting relationships with both students and prominent entrepreneur judges. Over the years, participating students have gone on to expand and build businesses, create thousands of jobs and generate millions in revenue.
“GSEA connects the world’s emerging student entrepreneurs with peers, mentors and the opportunity to learn and grow through competition.”
In addition to being college or university level students, participants would also have to be primarily responsible for a business that has been in operation for no less than six consecutive months. Upon review of the applications, selected students will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to present their business and entrepreneurial journey in front of a panel of entrepreneur judges.
The emerging champion from this round of the competition will proceed to the National Qualifiers to be held in Indore and will be in the running to win cash prizes and a bouquet of donated business products and services including web services, PR, consulting and more.
Student entrepreneurs interested in participating need to apply before December 15th, 2018 to secure their place in the competition. To know more about GSEA application and eligibility, visit: http://gsea.org/
