The 2014 GEW USA survey revealed that hosting events helps both the local ecosystem and individual organizations achieve goals and strengthen connections. 

This was a great year for us to involve new leaders, new volunteers, and new organizations. GEW will only grow in Dallas and hopefully Dallas will become more and more involved in the international presence of GEW!
Thank you for doing this! As the #1 University Affiliated Business Incubator, this was a great addition to our regular activities and social media efforts!

We enjoyed our first-time affiliation and hope to do even more next year!
Great job! In addition to messaging the important role of entrepreneurship in economic progress, there is also a link between entrepreneurship and development of strong personal character - especially among young people.
This was a great event and it really helped us bring to light the economic impact of entrepreneurs in the local economy.
This year I chose to participate in every local event and activity possible which resulted in an incredible experience both personally and professionally.
Very well organized and with great opportunities for students. We participated in the IDEA Challenge with DECA and it was awesome!
