GSP is the flagship program of the Singularity University (SU), an organization based at the NASA Research Park, in the heart of Silicon Valley, California.

A Different Kind Of Program

This is an intensive 10 week long training program, which includes demanding courses, trips to the biggest enterprises in Silicon Valley like Facebook, NASA, Google, Cisco, and visits to the most exciting start­ups in the area.

By the end of the program projects frequently become real businesses and enter SU Labs, the University’s own business incubator.

The finalists will present their projects at the Global Impact Competition CEE finals, in front of a selected jury comprising SU Faculty and regional executives of major corporations. The finals will take place in Budapest, Hungary, on the 9th of April 2015.
