The Global Students Entrepreneurship Awards (GSEA) Program is the premier awards for students that own and run businesses while attending College. GSEA is hosted by the Entrepreneurs Organization.

Inspiring young people to start and grow entrepreneurial ventures, the GSEA operates as an international series of competitions for student entrepreneurs who are attending a recognized high school, college or university, own a for-profit business that has been operational for at least six months, and are principally responsible for its operation. GSEA represents over 1700 of the leading student entrepreneurs from over 20 countries.  The competition is in its third year.
