Global Entrepreneurship Week in Eastern Washington

gewGlobal Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) has become an integral part of the region-wide entrepreneurial ecosystem, providing a myriad of diverse events for entrepreneurs and small businesses of all types. During the 3rd week of November, counties across the state plan and deliver as many entrepreneur-focused events as possible. And GEW 2016 did not disappoint!

In addition to Startup Weekend Spokane, Ignite Northwest demo day, and featuring three amazing companies at the Spokane Angel Alliance luncheon, Startup Spokane hosted Entrepreneur Connect featuring Women in Entrepreneurship.

Startup Asotin and Whitman in southeastern Washington held several events, including Clarkston High School DECA Entrepreneurship Development Conference, Business Plan Competition, Lunch and Learn – Building your Personal Brand, Resource Fair at WWCC – Clarkston, and Startup Stories – Tales of the Palouse Venture Launch

The events during GEW were in addition to regularly occurring events in our region:

  • Startup Spokane – Executive Connect, Entrepreneur Connect, Ecosystem Connect, plus two exciting new event series coming in 2017
  • Startup Whitman – Cup O’Joe, 1st Thursday, and Office Hours
  • Startup Asotin – Pub Talks, and a myriad of education workshops

A huge thank you to the staff of Startup Spokane (April Needham and Meagan Garrett), Startup Whitman (Sarah McKnight), Startup Asotin (Heather Markwalter) and South Eastern Washington Economic Development Association (Dawn Smith) for a very successful GEW across our region!
