Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is a celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare.

During one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators. This is a worldwide movement of entrepreneurial people, with millions unlocking their talents and turning their ideas into reality.

This year, Global Entrepreneurship Week is November 14-20th.
