We are a division of EO's (The Entrepreneurs' Organization's) GSEA (Global Student Entrepreneur Awards) that supports Canadian student entrepreneurs with mentorship, recognition and intentional connections to take their business to the next level of success. 





We provide a hub for all student entrepreneurs to build important relationships, offer supportive advice, and access exclusive networking opportunities with top business leaders in Canada and around the world.


We believe that the passion and innovation driving entrepreneurship is instrumental in making the best possible global impact. We bolster student entrepreneurs by minimizing barriers to market, increasing business connections and providing education.


We give access to world-class speakers, monthly resources, and regular learning content for student entrepreneurs  to gain the tools they need to grow their business

The Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) is the premier global competition for students who own and operate a business while attending college or university. Qualifying student applicants compete in the National Qualifier for a chance to move onto the National Championships. Finalists from the National Championships move on to compete on the world stage in the Global Finals the following spring.

This year, The National Qualifier will take place in May 2023, and the National Championships will be held on June 7, 2023. The National Championship prize package has been made possible by the Thomas GSEA Foundation


" There are countless missed opportunities across our country to capture and cultivate the bright young minds of students who have that innate entrepreneurial spark.

Beyond the reach and results of our Awards program lies an extraordinary opportunity to design a new future for so many young people - one with limitless options and fewer unknowns thanks to an expansive and welcoming community of leaders in the entrepreneurial space."

Michelle Ernest, Executive Director of the Canada GSEA Program
