The Detroit Chapter of the Entrepreneurs Organization (EO) is hosting a student entrepreneur competition called the EO Detroit Global Student Entrepreneur Awards at the Google Campus at Little Ceasars Arena on Nov. 19. The winners will represent Detroit in future regional and global competitions.
Local entrepreneurs will compete against their peers by presenting their businesses to a panel of entrepreneurs and business professionals. All participants will receive feedback from the judges, but only one Detroit student entrepreneur will go on to represent the Motor City at the national competition, hosted at the Startup Grind conference in California’s Silicon Valley in February.
The winners of all national competitions from around the world will go on to compete for the title of Global Student Entrepreneur Awards global champion, in Cape Town, South Africa in April 2020. GSEA participants will have an opportunity to engage with world-class entrepreneurs, receive media exposure, win cash, and share in more than $100,000 in donated business services.
“We are searching for talented student entrepreneurs to compete in our local event so that we can help prepare our best and brightest for the EO GSEA National Competition in February,” says Eric Whipple, chairman of the EO Detroit GSEA program. “Our chapter will not only prepare the student for the next level of competition, but we will also cover his or her expenses all the way through the national event.”
To participate, college student entrepreneurs must be nominated (self-nomination is accepted) by Oct. 15. For more information or to nominate a student entrepreneur please visit here.
