COVID threw us a curveball - our 2021 entrepreneurs hit it out of the park.
2021 has been a wild experience. Many businesses had to pivot - a trait we applaud in entrepreneurship.
GSE 2021 not only boasted an expansion of the program, but showcased GSE's continued versatility in light of Covid. Never negotiating safety, GSE successfully implemented without any Covid concerns due to its strategic focus on testing prior and during the summer experience.
Grit. Growth. Resilience.
Our approach to COVID-19 in Summer 2021 relied on strategic planning, a network of organizations across the state, and a team of young entrepreneurs ready to take action.
Now, more than ever, young entrepreneurs are needed to help sustain and rebuild Kentucky’s economy. Our unique hybrid approach included a state-of-the-art conferencing software, partnering with entrepreneurial hubs, and exceptional students.
Hopin partnered with us - allowing us to use their video conferencing platform in exchange for beta testing. This was a collaboration software like no other. Accessible. Adaptable. Slick.
Coworking locations across the state welcomed our young entrepreneurs into their spaces and helped us follow COVID-19 safety guidelines.
These high schoolers were committed to a transformational experience. Three weeks of intensive collaborative work paid off.
