Entrepreneurial Excellence

The Hawai‘i branch of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization is calling for applications for the fourth annual competition recognizing student entrepreneurs statewide. The Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) is the premier international awards program for student entrepreneurs. It is organized by the Entrepreneurs’ Organization, a global, peer-to-peer network of business owners. EO Hawaii, the statewide chapter, will host a qualifier GSEA competition on November 8 at the Kahala Hotel & Resort. Competition registration and participation are free. The winner of the Hawai‘i competition will receive a prize package valued at more than $5,000 to help grow her or his business, as well as access to the EO Hawaii network of mentors. The Hawai‘i winner will also advance to the national competition in Denver, Colorado, in January 2019, and the winner of that competition will advance to the global competition in Macau, China, to compete with 50 of the world’s top student entrepreneurs for a prize package valued at more than $40,000. Applicants must be enrolled for the current academic year in a university or college as undergraduate or graduate students at the time of application. They must have run their business for at least six months and generated $500 or raised $1,000 in investments. For complete details and prize package, go to EO Hawaii’s website. To apply, go to GSEA’s web page by October 25.
