Community colleges play a critical role in the entrepreneurial ecosystem by providing education, training and workforce development. They can foster entrepreneurial thinking, creating talent for local businesses and inspiring students to form new businesses. Global Entrepreneurship Week shines a spotlight on entrepreneurship programming, impressive student entrepreneurs and successful alumni.
Global Entrepreneurship Week highlights entrepreneurs across the country and around the world who are developing successful businesses. In 2021, GEW will also help celebrate entrepreneurs as key allies in addressing the economic aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. Never before has there been a more important moment for communities to highlight the crucial role played by entrepreneurs in creating jobs and strengthening their ecosystems.
