The Global Entrepreneurship Summer School Closing Event

The Global Entrepreneurship Summer School's (GESS) closing ceremony will take place on September 26th 2018, 6:30 p.m. at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich.

Get inspired by our international students from 25 nations. In their final pitches, they will present their innovative ideas and give you exciting insights into solutions to this year’s global challenge: consumption.

What is it all about?

GESS is a 7-day program supporting international and entrepreneurial-minded students who are strongly committed to improving our society. Out of 750 applicants from all over the world, 35 will present their impact-driven entrepreneurial solutions at our finals in Munich.

Entrepreneurship is in the DNA of GESS: our founders discovered a need that could be solved through their expertise. The idea was tested and resulted afterwards in an organization that would sustain it: the SEA, which is responsible for the execution of GESS .

In 2016, the program was brought to the next level thanks to a partnership with Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico), Tongji University (China) and the support of SAP Foundation. As we truly believe in the collaborative power of entrepreneurial thinking for a better and sustainable future we recently welcomed our new partner, LifeCo UnLtd South Africa, making GESS an even more global program.

Together we are combining education, entrepreneurship and a global network to foster sustainable development.

This year it’s all about the challenges caused by consumption.


Why “consumption” matters?

Did you know that if the world population reaches 9.6 billion by 2050, the equivalent of almost three planets would be required to sustain our current lifestyle?

Thus, we find it crucial to develop innovative solutions to tackle this problem.
