The Global Entrepreneurship Summer School (GESS) is a seven-day program where 140 university students come together in Munich, Mexico City, Shanghai and Cape Town to develop entrepreneurial solutions that meet the world’s biggest challenges. In the spirit of promoting “billion-dollar projects to foster societal change”, we work on the UN Sustainable Development Goals aiming to empower students to become young responsible leaders who create positive change in our society.
