Kiosk & Display President Jon VanderMeer will chair the 2023 Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (GSEA) Competition for the Atlanta Region of the Worldwide Entrepreneurs’ Organization and serve on the Atlanta board. Jon is ready to take the reins from previous chairs Shantel Kriss and Roxana Shershin who grew the program into what it is today. Jon adds, “This is different from Shark Tank. GSEA judges focus on the individual, their motivation, creativity and ability to pivot, and the foundations required to be a successful entrepreneur.” Follow our progress and these incredible students with Jon on LinkedIn!
