 Each year, CEO sponsors an informative, action packed global conference that attracts nearly 1,000 collegiate level students (and their faculty advisors) from around the World. During the three-day conference, attendees network with other entrepreneurial-minded students and listen to presentations from seasoned and nascent entrepreneurs, subject matter experts, motivational speakers and fellow students who are making the transition from dreamers to doers.

Preliminary rounds of the competition take place each day of the conference with the winners being announced at an awards ceremony on the conference’s final day. Over the years, thousands of students have participated in this highly competitive competition that showcases new and innovative business concepts from some of the best and brightest entrepreneurially minded students in the United States.
