The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) will be hosting its qualifying competition for the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) at the Cox School of Business Nov. 16.
EO is the world’s largest influential community of entrepreneurs with nearly 11,000 members across 48 countries who own businesses with revenues exceeding $1 million per year.
The GSEA provides an opportunity for students to showcase their business, while connecting with likeminded peers and networking with the CEOs of the world’s fastest-growing businesses.
Undergraduate entrepreneurs with a for-profit business that has operated for six consecutive months and generated a minimum of $500 in sales or $1,000 in investment funds, are encouraged to apply for the upcoming GSEA competition by Nov. 2.
Those who move on in the competition will go to the U.S. national competition in Miami Feb. 11, 2016. The winner of this competition will have the opportunity to compete in the global competition in May 2016.
Last year, there were move than 1,600 EO GSEA applications, of which 42 global finalists from 37 countries reached the EO GSEA Global Finals.
The GSEA regionals will be held Nov. 16 on SMU’s campus.
