Global Entrepreneurship Summer School invites applications from the smartest and best skilled international young entrepreneurs around the globe. The aim is to encourage and connect outstanding students from all over the world to challenge society’s problems by entrepreneurial means. The Summer School is taking place in Munich, Germany from September 17-25, 2014. The Summer School Topic for 2014 is ‘Waste’.
This is not just a convential Summer School. It is rather a tremendous opportunity for you to meet the most talented Entrepreneurial Leaders of Tomorrow from across the world and learn a lot about entrepreneurship.
The Global Entrepreneurship Summer School is a collaborative project of the four leading university-based Entrepreneurship Centers in Munich as well as the Social Entrepreneurship Academie.
During the Summer School the student teams develop ideas that have both a sustainable impact for society and a self-sustaining, profitable business model. The students learn about entrepreneurship, develop their own sustainable business ideas and build a long-lasting network of international excellent and entrepreneurial students. GESS fosters the important role of education, entrepreneurship and networking for a sustainable development.
