GEW Inclusion

  GEW Inclusion: Minimizing Barriers + Maximizing Inclusion Entrepreneurship is a positive force that drives innovation, creates wealth and improves lives in communities, cities and countries alike. But not everyone has the same opportunity. Race, age, gender, or where one lives should not be an obstacle to entrepreneurship. Anyone, anywhere should be able to realize their dream and start a business quickly, inexpensively, and without barriers. GEW Inclusion will highlight the work startup champions are doing around the world to minimize barriers and obstacles for entrepreneurs by maximizing inclusion. Activities, workshops and speaker series held around the world will explore the obstacles entrepreneurs from underserved populations may face, and discovering solutions through access to success stories, training, capital and mentorship. During Global Entrepreneurship Week, we will highlight powerful voices and ambassadors that promote the increase of inclusion in entrepreneurship; events, activities and competitions targeted toward engaging underserved and underrepresented populations; and GEN’s partner organizations that are playing active roles in the space. Topics covered may include: Roundtables on diversity and inclusion in entrepreneurship Solutions to overcoming barriers to entrepreneurship in your community Inclusion in tech Diversity and inclusion in investing, impact investing   FEATURED EVENTS Startup Radio Network | #startupathon 10 a.m. - Noon Pacific Time, November 12-15 From Monday through Thursday of Global Entrepreneurship Week, the Startup Radio Network #startupathon will host four different shows that week, spotlighting the amazing stories of 48 startups and their founders from 12 different countries.
