The 2019 Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) is inviting the world’s most inspiring entrepreneurs innovating in Agriculture, Connectivity, Energy, Health, and Water, to apply for the Summit, which will be held from 4 to 5 June 2019, at The Hague, the Netherlands. The Summit is an opportunity for scale ups in these 5 innovation sectors to showcase their enterprises before a group of top investors, founders, funders, experts and policymakers.

Applicants must be entrepreneurs who are ready to bring their investment-ready companies to pitch at the Summit with a transformative approach or technology in a focus area that is ready to scale internationally. The Summit is co-hosted by the governments of the Netherlands and the United States.


There is no conference fee associated with attending attend GES 2019. The organisers will cover lodging, but participants have to pay for their own transportation. A very limited number of scholarships are available.

GES 2019 curates one-on-one match making, pitch competitions, interactive stages, and unique networking opportunities that get good ideas in front of the right people.


Applicants must be entrepreneurs with a transformative tech solution for Agriculture, Connectivity, Energy, Health, or Water. The innovation has to be more than just a concept; it must possess a functioning, market-ready business model. The enterprise has to be investor-ready and capable to be scaled up internationally. Only those who are eager to join other trailblazers to build entrepreneur-led solutions for the future should apply for the GES. For each scale-up, only 1 representative can apply.


Applications are to be done online by 30 January 2019.
