What is an Outcome?

At GES, we strive to ensure the creativity and entrepreneurial energy doesn’t stop once delegates leave the conference. Not only are delegates connected to a wide range of GES alumni resources after the Summit — including access to a global network of GES alumni, past facilitators and institutional partners — but delegates also have the chance to receive tangible post-Summit assets and opportunities to further develop their projects after the Summit. We call these opportunities Outcomes.

Past Outcomes have included grants and investments to fund delegate projects, free marketing and content creation services, free sessions with established consulting agencies and fast-tracked application processes to prestigious conferences and fellowships such as Echoing Green.

During the Summit, delegates submit written applications for this year’s Outcomes, which will be awarded at the Closing Banquet. Some Outcomes are customized (ex. consulting partnerships for health-based projects), while others are open to all delegates who submit an application.

How to contribute

The Outcomes Committee looks for opportunities for delegates to further their projects after the Summit has ended. We are interested in connecting delegates to people or organizations with expertise in marketing, tech, energy, education, entrepreneurship, data analytics, crowdfunding, and more. Our goal is to create and foster these relationships in order to provide mentorships or services to the delegates’ projects to help the projects develop and reach their potential.

If you would like to partner with GES to provide an outcome, whether it be a grant, mentorship or service, please contact outcomes@theges.org.
