GEW 2021 is expected to involve around 10 million people in 170 countries around the world. The week is organised by the Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN), an independent platform for entrepreneurship aimed at unlocking the untapped potential of start-ups as the job creators of the future.

As GEW 2021 host for Ireland, Meath Enterprise is co-ordinating a number of events nationally this year in addition to organising its own local Meath Enterprise Week.

Meath Enterprise CEO and managing director of GEN Ireland Gary O’Meara has been working closely with both local and global partners and start-up ecosystem leaders to promote, support and celebrate entrepreneurship in Ireland. 

The Minister of State for Business, Employment & Retail, Damien English, TD, formally launched Global Entrepreneurship Week 2021 on 3th November 2021.

The GEN initiative directly links start-ups in Ireland with start-up cultures worldwide. Through its knowledge platform, research, policy and networking with governments around the globe, it plays a leadership role in advancing this country’s entrepreneurship ecosystem by drawing all the elements together and sharing expertise, knowledge and resources as a means of forging a stronger start-up environment.
