About Us

In 2015, Glasgow University Entrepreneurship Society (GUES) was founded as a student-run society with the aim of encouraging entrepreneurship amongst students.

Throughout the years, we have worked with a wide variety of organisations throughout the UK, always endorsing our motto: "Constantly Challenge The Status Quo".

Join The Board

There are two important dates throughout the academic year that you do not want to miss. Those are the elections for the board around April. As the academic year closes, new executive board members are recruited, such as the President, Vice-President, and Treasurer. General Representative positions will be advertised at the beginning of the new academic year.

 Stay up to date by liking our Facebook Page and following our Instagram Account.
