  • Governor's School for Entrepreneurs

    The 2019 GSE application is now LIVE! Click the button below to learn more and to access the application. The application will close on January 20th, 2019.

    Opening our doors to the first group of teen Entrepreneurs in 2013, our mission is to bring teens from across the state into a three-week residential program, immerse them in a creative space and arm them with the tools needed to unleash their innate entrepreneurial spirits for the betterment of Kentucky. During the program, motivated teams of high school students develop a business model, design a prototype, and pitch their startup to a large audience and panel of judges. This culminating event is known to us as Demo Day. At GSE, teens learn about the opportunities, benefits and pitfalls of taking a business concept from the idea phase to pitching it to potential investors
