The Global Entrepreneurship Network has more than 80 country affiliates – non-governmental organizations that guide the development of healthy, national entrepreneurship ecosystems globally connected to leading-edge research, innovative programs and experts.

GEN affiliates are led by managing directors who undertake activities that: 

  • Inspire, educate and support entrepreneurs. 

  • Identify global best practices for participating in joint projects and live events around the world. 

  • Apply new knowledge and innovations to improve their country’s entrepreneurial ecosystem. 

  • Deepen understanding through entrepreneurship research and the development of public policies that pave the way for future innovation and entrepreneurial activity. 

  • Are a powerful force to accelerate new firm formation and growth.  

As new GEN affiliates launch and as new managing directors are appointed, we will announce them here:
