Event exposes young aspiring entrepreneurs to skills needed to start a company
GEORGETOWN, Ky. (Jan. 2, 2015) — Georgetown College will host the Governor’s School for Entrepreneurs (GSE) in 2015 and 2016. The school has hosted the event since it was launched in 2013.
GSE exposes young aspiring entrepreneurs to the mindset, culture, innovative thinking and skills necessary to start a company. Participants are selected through a competitive application process.
GSE does not consider GPA or test scores in selecting participants, but rather looks for creative thinkers who want to roll up their sleeves and make a difference with the product or service they are developing. The goal during the three-week residency is for students to take their ideas to the next level and learn how to start a business.
“Georgetown College has been a wonderful partner with us, and together we have made GSE a high caliber program where students from all across the state and of many diverse backgrounds can come together and achieve things they never thought possible,” said Laurie Daugherty, GSE’s executive director.
GSE’s unique program brings teachers, schools, universities, graduate students, start-up technology companies, experienced entrepreneurs, scientists and engineers all together into a dynamic, hands-on summer learning experience.
Applications are currently being reviewed and individuals selected will be notified in April. The 2015 GSE is from June 21 to July 11.
