Project Description:

The Global Entrepreneurship Summer School (GESS) approaches the important role of combining education, entrepreneurship, and networking for sustainable development. The vision of GESS is based on the philosophy of creating claim “billion dollar projects to foster Societal change“. We want to encourage and connect outstanding students from all over the world to challenge society’s problems by entrepreneurial means. We want our students to think big and contribute to sustainable change in the dimension of billion. GESS 2016 focused on MIGRATION and took place from September 10th-16th! During the Global Entrepreneurship Summer School (GESS), 105 outstanding students located in three cities around the world – Munich, Shanghai and Mexico City – will get together and experience real entrepreneurship with a social impact. It is all about doing! Simultaneously with two other cities, you will work in international and interdisciplinary teams to develop ideas that have both a sustainable impact for 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 entrepreneurial international friends. A series of interactive lectures by renowned entrepreneurs structure the project work and provide you with complementary knowledge (e.g. business planning or topic-specific issues). Throughout the GESS, your team is partnered with coaches who provide you and your team with feedback and assistance on your project, business plan, and technical questions.

Project Goals:

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!
