Think about your world in new ways.

GSE’s leadership recognized that teens in Kentucky were not being given dynamic opportunities to learn about entrepreneurship and put their ideas into action. For many communities in Kentucky, efforts focused on human capital -- meaning entrepreneurship education initiatives aimed at changing the mindset and capacity of young people -- may be the best hope of changing outcomes and improving living standards.

A Three-Week Program:
designed to impact the future.

GSE is a three-week residential summer program where young entrepreneurs, working in teams, take an idea and utilize STEAM and enterprise skills to create a service or product.

Teams explore and build a feasible business model around their idea.

On the final day of the program, teams pitch their business ideas to a live audience and panel of judges, known as Demo Day.

Process makes change happen.

At GSE, we teach our young entrepreneurs to search for problems. Once they find a problem we have them research it. Deeply. We show them how to view a problem from all angles. To truly understand the issue before creating a solution.

At GSE, we practice what we preach.

We saw a problem - fewer entrepreneurs to positively impact Kentucky. After research, conversations, networking, and a lot of grit, we developed a solution. A three-week residential, immersive, and transformative entrepreneurial experience for Kentucky teens.

We nurture the skills needed to become Kentucky's next great innovators, change makers, and entrepreneurs.
