The Global Student Entrepreneur Awards

The Global Student Entrepreneur Awards recognize those outstanding undergraduate student entrepreneurs who are simultaneously juggling course work and cash flows – and succeeding at both! We understand the importance of encouraging entrepreneurship in students. This new generation of risk takers will help create the economic foundation of tomorrow.

Student winners from the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, Australia, and New Zealand compete. They come from different backgrounds and with different business ideas, but they share the determination and creativity common to successful entrepreneurs.

Finalists must produce more than just a financially successful business. Their company’s quality, service, adaptation to change and social impact are evaluated by an international panel of judges.

The 2002 Global Student Entrepreneur received a $10,000 prize, presented at the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization (CEO) Conference Nov. 8-10, in Washington D.C. The Judges also awarded $3,000 prizes for innovative and for social impact.

The Global Student Entrepreneur program originated at Saint Louis University’s Jefferson Smurfit Center for Entrepreneurial Studies in 1988 for students in the state of Missouri. A decade later, the competition, formerly named North American Collegiate Entrepreneur Awards (NACE), expanded across the globe.

Financial support and promotional services for the Global Student Entrepreneur™ Awards are provided by The Coleman Foundation, Edward Jones, Edward Lowe Foundation, Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation for Entrepreneurial Leadership and Northwestern Mutual Financial Network.
