Seeking Pakistan’s Finest Student Entrepreneurs
The Pakistan Chapter of EO is now accepting applications from student entrepreneurs across various universities.

The GSEA Difference
Unlike conventional pitch competitions, GSEA focuses on nurturing students who epitomize the tenacious spirit of entrepreneurship. The scoring rubric emphasizes resilience, adaptability, and passion demonstrated by participants while overcoming the challenges of starting a business alongside their studies. The winning entrepreneur will be someone who exhibits remarkable determination in navigating the complexities of entrepreneurship.
