Each year the Georgetown Entrepreneurship Alliance awards alumni entrepreneurs the Georgetown Entrepreneurial Excellence Award for Outstanding Alumni Entrepreneur. Nominations are solicited from our community of alumni worldwide, and finalists and winners are selected by a committee comprised of the GEA Board of Directors and the University. Award winners are welcomed back to campus to receive their award, speak to current student entrepreneurs and StartupHoyas, and meet with University administrators and Professors.
