Celebrating Entrepreneurship Across the World

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is a weeklong celebration of entrepreneurship which goes into full swing on Monday, November 13, and runs through the following Sunday, November 19. This celebration has been occurring in ecosystems across the world for the past 10 years. Startup Weekend Spokane kicks off GEW on November 10.

According to the Global Entrepreneurship Network website:
GEW serves as a community-building season to reach out to the public at large to inspire more people to engage with their local entrepreneurship ecosystem. During one week each November, thousands of events and competitions around the world (more than 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 17,000 partner organizations.
