The GCEC awards are designed to showcase and celebrate the very best of university entrepreneurship! We are excited to read about the great achievements of university entrepreneurship programs and proud to recognize them. Each year, the GCEC recognizes the top entrepreneurship programs in nine categories. Whilst each category will typically have one overall winner, the judges may decide to award “Highly Commended” to some finalists.
In addition, schools may nominate an individual for the GCEC Legacy Award. The GCEC Legacy Award recognizes an individual for a lifetime of “pioneering work in advancing entrepreneurship in universities and/or directing a university entrepreneurship center that created a legacy impact on the field of entrepreneurship”.
Finalists and winners will be announced at the 2023 GCEC Conference from Oct. 5-7 at The University of Texas, Dallas. The awards ceremony and dinner are set for Saturday, October 7. A leader from your entity must be registered for and attend the conference to receive an award. You can nominate your entity in multiple award categories. A panel of judges, led by past winners and current GCEC members, selects the award recipients.
