About the Thomas GSEA Foundation
The role of the Thomas GSEA Foundation is to provide funding for, and to collaborate with, the Canadian GSEA Committee to strengthen the GSEA program in Canada and expand its reach and impact.
Founded by Peter H. Thomas, EO founding member and Chairman Emeritus, and funded by the Thomas family, the Foundation operates under the fervent belief that the world around us is better as a direct result of entrepreneurship.
By providing mentorship, exposure, and wisdom by way of the GSEA program, we are helping young entrepreneurs realize their potential through growth and development on their way to success.
The Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) supports student entrepreneurs who require much-needed mentorship, recognition, and connections to take their businesses to the next level of success.
Since 1998 the program has grown to include 56 countries, and has been the subject of a National Geographic produced documentary, Own the Room, available on Disney+.
