What is GESS?
GESS is a 7-day program supporting international and entrepreneurial-minded students, who are strongly committed to improve our society. This year’s topic is „consumption“.
Entrepreneurship is in the DNA of GESS: our founders discovered a need that could be solved through their expertise. The idea was tested and resulted afterwards in an organization that would sustain it: the SEA, which is responsible for the execution of GESS .
In 2016, the program was brought to the next level thanks to a partnership with Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico), Tongji University (China) and the support of SAP Foundation. As we truly believe in the collaborative power of entrepreneurial thinking for a better and sustainable future we recently welcomed our new partner, LifeCo UnLtd South Africa, making GESS an even more global program.
Together we are combining education, entrepreneurship and a global network to foster sustainable development.
