GSE entrepreneurs live on a college campus in dormitories with separate quarters for males and females. They learn a great deal about themselves and others as they live in a community and develop long-lasting friendships. A select group of supportive high school and college teachers, graduate and undergraduate students, business leaders, experienced entrepreneurs and other mentors works closely with the students in experiential learning sessions, hands-on design sessions and co-curricular activities. Well-known guest speakers and mentors, field trips to startup companies and other businesses, movies, special events, and a wide range of recreational opportunities offer an array of stimulating activities. Students have a blast while turning their ideas into real products.
