Global Entrepreneurship Week

November 17 - 23, 2014 

Celebrating entrepreneurship in cities across the U.S.


Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. 

During one week each November, GEW 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. 

GEW USA fosters support for entrepreneurs and intermediary organizations on the local level. Over 2,000 organizers have hosted events during GEW, helping to inspire entrepreneurial communities across the country. This year, GEW USA will focus on American cities that are growing in entrepreneurial strength and working cross-sector to support new entrepreneurs and their businesses. We hope that by focusing on metro areas GEW will increase the number of healthy startup communities, produce successful entrepreneurs, and create lasting economic success for cities across the U.S. Learn more about GEW Cities.
