Written for EO by Tom Charman, CEO of KOMPAS
As a student entrepreneur, I’m always looking for opportunities that will help me grow myself and my business. So, when I came across the EO Global Student Entrepreneur Awards (EO GSEA) in 2015, I decided to sign up. Around this time, I had exited my second technology business, choosing instead to focus on building something in the travel industry (a field close to my heart). Using artificial intelligence—more specifically, hyper- personalization—I started to create something I thought could change the travel space forever. But, I needed some direction to help me reach the next stage.
