For one week in November 2019, 170 countries will come together to celebrate the inspirers, the idea generators and the drivers of economic growth, also known as global entrepreneurs, innovators and job creators. Between the 18th to the 24th November countries from around the world will engage in connecting entrepreneurs with collaborators, mentors and stakeholder groups in order to develop a network of synergistic partners and new opportunities. Supported by the Kauffman Foundation, Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is endorsed by a significant amount of world leaders and has a network of more than 15,000 partner entities. During this one-week event, GEW will host several global activities which aim to engage and connect stakeholder groups and assist entrepreneurs along their pioneering journey. Events range from large-scale contests to smaller more intimate networking events.
