2018 Student Review
"glo is actually a great opportunity for those thinking big, aiming high, following their passion and building success on their resilience which is starting up their own business and making a change locally, internationally and globally! This amazing program has given me chances of learning many new things and meeting all like-minded people such as entrepreneurs, industry professionals, start-ups, inspiring speakers…try something new, challenge myself and make a difference for the people, society and the globe as a whole!”

WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
As an International Student
Experience The Glo!
We carefully matches you to a startup business in terms of your skills and experience, business regional knowledge, focus and sector understanding.
You join this Startup company as a team member and participate in the 2-month program together.
The team will learn together from a range of global experts and very importantly, from each other. Students will experience the mindset and processes required to drive a startup to global success.
Subject to current restrictions, many glo events during the 2-month program of workshops are open to the public.
If you are not fortunate enough to be selected as a student or startup participant, you can still "get some glo" by attending some or all the public events. You can register to receive information about the upcoming events, and you MUST register for any event you wish to attend on Eventbrite.
As a Student Volunteer
Help us to shine!
Join the organising committee or the working teams to help plan and create the unique glo event.
Assist with events and interact with the startup teams. glo volunteers develop strong leadership abilities while making friends and improving language and communications skills.
