Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is the world's largest festival of entrepreneurship. Held every November, it covers 170 countries, through 35,000 events, in cooperation with 20,000 partners, and attracts in excess of 10 million people.
GEW inspires millions to engage in entrepreneurial activity while connecting them to potential collaborators, mentors and investors.
The independent charity started life in the UK as Enterprise Week more than a decade ago. Since then, GEW UK has grown to work with 150 events and 49 partners.
Powered by the Kauffman Foundation, a non-profit, private foundation for entrepreneurship and education founded in 1966, the initiative is supported by dozens of world leaders.
This year, GEW will be held 13-19 November.
