Self-driven college and university student business owners can now apply for the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards.
The Winnipeg chapter of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization is hosting the awards in the city on November 20.
The winner of the Manitoba GSEA Competition wins a trip to Toronto to compete at the GSEA National Competition in February 2015. That finalist will attend the GSEA finals in Washington, DC to compete with the world’s top student entrepreneurs and for the chance to win more than $20,000 USD in cash and donated business services.
Students are eligible to apply if they’re enrolled as an undergraduate or graduate student of a recognized Manitoba college or university. Students need to be primarily responsible for the operation of a business that has been operating for no less than six consecutive months.
More than 1,700 student competitors from more than 32 countries have participated in the global EO GSEA since its launch in 1998.
The deadline to apply is November 3, 2014.
