About GEN UK

GEN UK represents the entrepreneurial ecosystem across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, working with entrepreneurs, investors, policymakers, researchers, public bodies and support organisations. The inspiration for GEN, Global Entrepreneurship Week, was created in 2007 by the UK Government and the Kauffman Foundation in the US. Since 2008 we have celebrated Global Entrepreneurship Week every November, joining 10 million people at 35,000 events across the world. From aspiration to enterprise, we are here for you.
