*ship Global University Summit (GUS) brings together the creative minds of education and the rebels in entrepreneurial approaches to teaching. It is a three-day hardcore seminar and workshop to break barriers, showcase best practices and get entrepreneurial mindset to your university’s daily life.

At GUS, you will be able to meet like-minded Rebels, such as university representatives, accelerators, entrepreneurs, politicians and students. Our goal is to find suitable solutions and ideas to get entrepreneurial education implemented and attached in universities. Entrepreneurship is becoming our common future, and universities need to be aware of this trend and the latest approaches.

What we will offer you? Besides a future-oriented perspective, new project establishment possibilities and enhanced global network expansion, we will give you a bigger picture of executing entrepreneurship in universities with a rebellious approach.
