GSEC is an international student social business plan competition that challenges university-level students worldwide to use business principles to create sustainable, positive solutions to some of the world’s most challenging issues—poverty, health and development. Semi-finalist student teams from around the globe are invited to Seattle to present their ideas to coaches, mentors and judges and compete to win prizes.

Join us to learn how, through GSEC, you could win $12K, get exposure to 400+ professionals, and receive expert coaching to develop a social venture in developing economies. A great place to find team members/join a team! Did you know that GSEC offers a Global Health prize of $10,000 for the most innovative and transformational GSEC business plan that has a primary focus on alleviating health disparities, improving the health of poor or marginalized populations, and/or promoting the capacity of a community to deal with health problems?
