S2BMRC Member Benjamin Conard to represent Germany at and to compete for the GSEA #StudentPreneur award in Frankfurt after being named the German National Champion

April 24, 2017

The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) and the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) welcomes an elite worldwide group of entrepreneurs who are actively operating a business while attending a university to the finals competition in Frankfurt, Germany. The competition will take place on April 28th, 2017 and will have student representatives from 56 countries.

One of them is Benjamin Conard from the S2BMRC-Team who will be representing Germany. Last week he won the German chapter to be the best #StudentPreneur from Germany. Thus Ben will present his story to the judges about what it means to him to be a #StudentPreneur. To be a GSEA #StudentPreneur, you have to prove that you have a thirst for learning, that you’re a bold risk taker, that you make your mark in your industry, and that you are trustworthy and respectful in your work.

The 1st place winner will receive a $20,000 prize. 2nd place will receive $10,000, 3rd place $5,000, and there will be prizes awarded for Social Impact, Innovation, and Lessons from the Edge.

Ben is the founder of Five North Chocolate, an ethical, vegan, snacking chocolate startup on a mission to change the way people think about chocolate. You can learn more about his business here.

S2BMRC is very proud of Ben’s achievement! Good luck and all the best in Frankfurt, Ben!
