The Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) Program is the premier award for students that own and run businesses while attending a high school, college or university.

Selected applicants compete against their peers by presenting their businesses to a panel of judges. All participating students receive feedback from the judges. The top regional and national winners advance to the 2013 GSEA Global Finals for the opportunity to engage with world class entrepreneurs, receive media exposure, win cash, and share in over $150,000 in donated business services.
