Why You Believe in GSEA

My involvement with the GSEA Program began many years ago when Peter Thomas through the Thomas Foundation and Todd Thomas Foundation began supporting EO’s development and promotion of the program. Supporting young entrepreneurs throughout their journey by providing mentorship and cash prizes will encourage them and other entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams. I am very excited to see the program grow in Canada.
