Starting today, in 123 countries around the world, millions of current and aspiring entrepreneurs will kick off the third-annual Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) 2011, Nov. 14-20. More than 25,000 partner organizations will host 40,000 events in a week-long celebration that will drive awareness and adoption for the world’s key economic driver — entrepreneurship.
“For one week each November, students, educators, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and government officials come together to pursue one cause — to spread the power of entrepreneurship,” said Carl Schramm, president and CEO of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. “It’s during this time that we celebrate the innovators who bring ideas to life, drive economic growth, and expand human welfare.”
An initiative of the Kauffman Foundation, the world’s largest foundation dedicated to entrepreneurship, GEW connects people through activities that create a platform to foster an entrepreneurial ecosystem. There are no requirements to take part. Anyone, anywhere can participate in wide-ranging activities that include virtual and face-to-face events, competitions, and intimate networking gatherings.
A reminder from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, and kudos to all of you current and aspiring entrepreneurs!!
