Global Entrepreneurship Week

junior - November 19, 2020 - 28 comments

The Global Entrepreneurship Week is a celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch
startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth, and expand human welfare. Note that this year’s
event runs November 16-22,2020 so do not miss your chance!
To give you a little historical context, GEW emerged in 2008 as a result of Enterprise Week UK and Entrepreneurship Week USA 2007. Since
its creation, more than 10 million people from roughly 170 countries have participated in entrepreneurship-related
events, activities and competitions during GEW.This annual event occurs over the span of one week and includes the participation
of millions of entrepreneurs, investors, policymakers, researchers, educators, entrepreneurship support organizations and interested
individuals. Currently, 165 countries celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week running national campaigns that generate approximately 35,000 events,
activities and competitions.

What is a global entrepreneur?
A global entrepreneur seeks out and conducts new and innovative business activities
across national borders. These activities may consist of exporting, licensing, opening a new sales office, or acquiring
another venture.

During this year’s GEW, thousands of events and competitions in 170 countries inspire millions to engage in entrepreneurial
activity while connecting them to potential collaborators, mentors, and even investors. Powered by the Kauffman Foundation, the initiative
is supported by dozens of world leaders and a network of more than 15,000 partner organizations.
