Entrepreneurship as Sport ™

Join us in building a global movement of conscious entrepreneurship to create a better tomorrow

Job Creation is one of the biggest challenges facing humanity

Within The Next Decade, We Need To Create Over 1 Billion New Jobs 

A movement that makes entrepreneurship the new heartbeat of the world.

The Entrepreneurship Sports Generation is a global, sportified entrepreneurship tournament. ESG seeks to provide the most promising startups with a platform to unleash their potential, and achieve global scale. ESG will also engage global audiences throughout this incredible journey with a proprietary investment simulation game and regular audience polls, like never before.

Rewards worth USD 1 Billion already committed by partners and more to follow.

Tournament Style Competitions

Inspired by the epitome of sports events “the Olympics”, ESG has been structured as a multi-tiered competition with city, national, confederation, and global finals. The competitors will face each other in knockout rounds throughout the competition, to have the honour of representing their countries in the global finals.

Given the health concerns around the pandemic, ESG 2021 has the capacity to be an entirely virtual program with the hope that we will be able to host a hybrid event by the end of the year. From the user-friendly application portal to a custom-designed world-class event platform, and multi-million dollar rewards, tGELF, and our partners have planned a memorable journey for the startups and our global audiences.

A Fully Digitized Experience

Gamified Format

ESG will engage participants, jury members, franchise-owners and audience members in an interactive experience. Audience members will be able to vote, online, for their favourite teams throughout the competition.

ESG will tap into, and build the entrepreneurial spirit around the world to solve the most pressing challenges confronting the planet. This year’s edition will highlight the African ecosystem, while working with partners globally.
