GEB has been an unforgettable experience in my entrepreneurial activities. It was more than I expected. After the 4 days intensive program with enriching speakers, as well as my valuable interaction with amazing participants coming from different parts of the world, I felt satisfied and I was proud of myself for not doubting and taking the risk to travel all the way from Ivory Coast to Thailand. Now I am more than happy as I have learned so much and gotten interesting opportunities for personal development open up right after my participation in GEB as part of the winning team. GEB is a reference for the international leadership program, and I believe any entrepreneur should participate at least once in his life. I will definitely be interested to participate again in the future. If you are an entrepreneur and want to see a positive change in your career, join GEB now!Amenan Couboura Sidiki

My experience at GEB Bangkok was fruitful. From validating my idea to pitching and winning the "Judge's Special Mention" title, it was a journey worth remembering. What makes the Bootcamp a must-attend event is the resourceful people whom you interact with. We received a lot of insights and inputs from almost every mentor. In the end, Cultural Night at GEB was so much fun to learn about different cultures. The Bootcamp might be over but the friendships I made there will stay forever.Rahul Maurya
Getting accepted for the GEB 2019 program was a dream come true and was something beyond my wildest imagination. I left Bangkok with a wonderful experience and new friends from all around the world. The beauty of diversity at GEB was amazing, everybody was so helpful and welcoming. I had the summer of my life and I would encourage everyone to apply to GEB. I will forever cherish these moments, thank you GEB!Khouloud Jaffel
I was amazed by how many passionate juniors and high school students were present at the Bootcamp and how dedicated they are to creating a better world through entrepreneurship. This showed me how youths can be empowered at an early age if they are given the right platform to showcase their skills and I am confident GEB entrepreneurs will develop business groups that will inspire generations. GEB is more than just a Bootcamp, it's a real movement to create global change makers.Pacifique Essereke

GEB is a chance for everyone who has an idea and doesn’t know how to develop it into a real work. As a participant in the 5th GEB, this experience has given me the opportunity to have the knowledge required to start a business from a simple idea. Actually GEB isn’t just a bootcamp, it gives you the right platform to develop your ideas and show your skills in order to create a positive change in the world.Alisse Nasser
My experience at GEB Jakarta was splendid. The speakers motivated me to implement my ideas as I intend to be an entrepreneur. It was like a wake up call, like it's never too early nor too late, the time is now. And now I feel like I have a lot to unleash yet I never felt like that before the bootcamp, I'm highly motivated.Susan Mapfumo
GEB Jakarta 2018 was a totally different experience with a great chance for meeting like-minded ambitious young leaders, networking with them, learning and exchanging experiences.

GEB was a lifechanging experience, and I would recommend it to any entrepreneur looking to challenge their status quo, collaborate with and learn from like-minded delegates and mentors across the world. The bootcamp gave me a reignited sense of motivation towards achieving my life goals and the network to match. The unique cultural explosion that took place for those long days and nights was like nothing I had ever experienced. It taught me a deeper sense of global unity and appreciation. The downtimes were some of my favorites as we were able to connect and learn more about our fellow young entrepreneurs and mentors; their personal experiences, their advice to help build ourselves and our companies was priceless. All in all, GEB 2018 in Thailand was amazingDexter Neal Jr Joshua Wilson

I feel thrilled to share my heart-warming experience at the first Global Entrepreneurship Boot camp which was set in one of the most offbeat places called Kakani in Nepal. On reaching the Boot camp, I wouldn’t deny about being nervous initially while coming across other delegates and having some interesting conversations. I thanked my stars and felt proud to be amongst these extraordinary people from varied domains and different nationalities achieving so much at such young age. I had entered GEB with a belief to survive the forthcoming amazing days of Learning|Unlearning|Relearning and in the end with a bright smile conquered the camp and won some amazing memories and a network for life.Siddharth Jain
The Global Entrepreneurship Bootcamp not only gave us the opportunity to network with people from various countries, but it also gave us the platform to grow intellectually through the various mentorship lessons and skillfully through the business tasks we were given to work on. The location it was held at (Kakani) was simply breathtaking and refreshing as we woke up each morning to the beautiful view of green hills and clouds. The GEB was an unforgettable experienceKesego Mosime
Attending the GEB in Nepal has been a tremendous opportunity to learn, network and keep up with entrepreneurship knowledge base. Very good, hands-on information were shared from competent mentors who gave us the best as far as entrepreneurship is concerned.
