Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) takes place each November and is the world’s largest celebration of entrepreneurs who are launching startups to bring their ideas to life, drive economic growth and encourage job creation. GEW inspires people around the world through local, national and global activities that help them explore and share their innovative potential.
