About Global Entrepreneurship Week United Kingdom

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is the world’s biggest celebration of entrepreneurship - and it is back in the UK for 2019.

This week-long festival of live events taking place throughout the country celebrates and cultivates our national entrepreneurship ecosystem. GEW helps people from every walk of life connect to the support they need at every stage of their entrepreneurial journey. 

From the 18-24 November, Global Entrepreneurship Week inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators. These activities, from large-scale competitions and events to intimate networking gatherings, connect participants to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors—introducing them to new possibilities and exciting opportunities.

This year, GEWUK is joining forces with a group of leading enterprise and entrepreneurship organisations around the world and encouraging UK startups to #GoGlobal. Check back throughout Global Entrepreneurship Week to access targetted content and support in the areas that are of most importance for entrepreneurs. We're helping the UK map their entrepreneurial journey and take the next step to success.

Last year in the UK hundreds of partner organisations hosted around hundreds of events that reached more than 240,000 entrepreneurial people across the country.

If there’s ever a time to make it happen, it’s during Global Entrepreneurship Week!
