During the Global Entrepreneurship Summer School (GESS), 105 motivated students located in three cities around the world – Munich, Shanghai and Mexico City – will experience a unique learning opportunity with a social impact. Students from all over the world will be encouraged to develop innovative solutions that can meet the world’s biggest challenges in a sustainable manner.
At GESS, you will work in international and interdisciplinary teams to develop ideas that present both a sustainable impact on society and a self-sustaining, profitable business model. Over the course of 7 days, you will learn about entrepreneurship, develop your own sustainable business ideas and build a long-lasting network of talented and international friends.
A series of interactive lectures by renowned entrepreneurs will inform the project work and provide complementary knowledge (e.g., business planning or topic-specific issues). Throughout GESS, your team will be partnered with a coach who will provide you with feedback and assistance on your project and business plan and assist you with any technical questions. At the end of the course, you and your team will pitch your idea to an audience of more than 250 guests – and you should definitely not miss the celebration afterwards!
Experience a unique opportunity with international students from all around the world who are coming together with one common mission: to change the world through entrepreneurial means!
