Up to 15 semi finalist teams will be invited to GSEC Week 2011, February 14-18, in Seattle where they will compete for up to US$30,000 in prizes, including an Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and a Global Health prize.
The Global Social Entrepreneurship Competition (GSEC) is a leading-edge international social venture plan competition, where interdisciplinary student teams from around the world propose creative, commercially viable businesses aimed at reducing poverty in the developing world.
From solar-powered modular power generators in Papua New Guinea, to prickless anemia scanners in India, to mobile wind turbines in Kazakhstan, to sustainable agriculture in Zimbabwe, GSEC business plans demonstrate the power of business to create sustainable, positive change to some of the world’s most challenging social problems.
This is an exciting time to be a part of GSEC: in 2010 applications doubled to 161 submissions from teams in 36 countries. Since its inception, over 1200 students from 39 countries have participated in GSEC.
Each year more than 150 professionals provide invaluable expertise and resources as mentors, judges, and sponsors. We welcome this essential support, from individuals at organizations like Costco, Gray Ghost Ventures, Microsoft, PATH, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Smith Barney, Seattle International Foundation, the Grameen Foundation, and the Washington Global Health Alliance.
This offer is open to students of tertiary institutions at any level in their studies.
