I was amazed at the energy and excitement among attendees at the GEES! The blend of academic and practitioner speakers added value to the summit. I walked away with making some excellent contacts and a load of new ideas to share and implement at my university. I look forward to attending the 2023 GEES and highly recommend it.

Pam Induni

UC Berkeley, Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology; 2022 GEES Guest Speaker: ‘The Idea Equation’
What a thought-provoking and motivating experience! Featuring guest speakers and attendees from both Academia and Industry who are not only teaching entrepreneurship, but founders themselves. A reimagining entrepreneurship education hands-on workshop that creatively captured the hearts and minds of all of us – and provided a roadmap for execution. And the most inspiring aspect? Being co-located with the European Innovation Academy (EIA) program which welcomes and challenges 450 global students from top universities to work in teams to take their idea from concept to market in under 3 weeks. It was such an honor being a part of this hands-on, multi-faceted event. Already looking forward to GEES 2023!
