The Global Social Entrepreneurship Competition (GSEC) is a leading-edge international social venture plan competition, where interdisciplinary student teams from around the world propose creative, commercially viable businesses aimed at reducing poverty in the developing world.

From solar-powered modular power generators in Papua New Guinea, to prickless anemia scanners in India, to mobile wind turbines in Kazakhstan, to sustainable agriculture in Zimbabwe, GSEC business plans demonstrate the power of business to create sustainable, positive change to some of the world’s most challenging social problems.

Each year, GSEC brings the world to University of Washington (UW): a select group of semi-finalist student teams from around the globe are invited to Seattle for GSEC Week.

Teams visit regional companies, present their business ideas to judges, and compete for at least US$30,000 in prizes that go to the most innovative social business ideas targeting poverty alleviation in developing economies.
