What is the GBEV Corporate Program?

The company program is mainly attended by 2nd and 3rd year high school students. After the completion of the educational processes of the selected schools and their teachers, the teachers and their students will enter the process of establishing a company. These companies are companies that are not registered in the commercial register, but are companies in all aspects. Young people build their capital by selling virtual shares based on materials provided by GBEV, manufacture and sell products, finalize their corporate structure and close the company at the end of 12 to 26 weeks. If the company has made a profit, dividends are distributed to shareholders. During this process, students go through job interviews, go through the necessary corporate structures such as CEO and finance, human resources, sales and marketing, and hold general meetings.

The aim of this program is to help young people develop their sense of responsibility, self-confidence, teamwork and increase their financial literacy by living this experience rather than making a profit for an established company. Successful young people have the opportunity to meet other young people participating in this program on an international stage and to sell their products at the GBEV International Fair.
