GSE is Scheduling Fall Visits!
What's Next for GSE Alumni? KY Pitch!
The KY Pitch Competition is designed to encourage innovation and entrepreneurship by engaging students from Kentucky’s postsecondary colleges and universities. KY Pitch provides an opportunity to develop and pursue their business ideas. The Competition will reward business models that are judged by an independent panel as most innovative, complete and most likely to result in successful ventures that would create new jobs for Kentuckians.
GSE Alumni who are in dual credit courses or who are in college are encouraged to participate. More information coming very soon!
Campus Doc Wins First Place at Healthcare Pitch Competition
We are very excited to announce that Campus Doc, a 2019 GSE team, WON the first annual Healthcare Pitch Competition. These ladies were awarded $4,000 to go toward their idea! Big shout out to Zac Strobl and Jeff Varrone of NKU's CIE. Thanks to NKU's Institute for Health Innovation for hosting such a great event! Their first step? Filing for an LLC!
Campus Doc is a mobile application for college students that houses important medical information and documentation, ensuring that when a student visits a campus clinic or other medical facility, their information is accurate and easy to access, alleviating the stress that often comes when students visit doctors without the support of their parents. Parents and Students can upload and complete the required documents together before the start of the semester, making medical visits easier and accurate.

Louisville Collegiate Hosts Startup Weekend Experience
From Louisville Collegiate:
With support from a grant from The E.E. Ford Foundation, Collegiate will host a two-day startup accelerator and competition September 21 & 22. It is going to be an awesome event for students to dig into some exciting entrepreneurial problem solving, meet and work with other students, and learn from established entrepreneurs and coaches over two days.
Registration is free! Participants need to provide their own transportation and lodging (if coming from out of town), but we’ll take care of everything else. Students need to register individually and get their parent or guardian's permission. However, as we build teams for the startups, students have the option to join a team that forms that Saturday morning, or, if students from a particular school have been working together already, they have the option to stick together for the weekend’s work. In short, students can come as part of a team already, or they can come and join a team that day. No prior experience is necessary.
The Governor's School for Entrepreneurs is hosted by Northern Kentucky University
" NKU is a growing metropolitan university of more than 14,000 students served by more than 2,000 faculty and staff on a thriving suburban campus near Cincinnati.
Located in the quiet suburb of Highland Heights, Kentucky—just seven miles southeast of Cincinnati—we have become a leader in Greater Cincinnati and Kentucky by providing a private school education for a fraction of the cost. While we are one of the fastest growing universities in Kentucky, our professors still know our students' names. "
