Originally launched in 2008 by former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Carl Schramm, former president of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, Global Entrepreneurship Week now spans the globe with nearly 25,000 partner organizations planning more than 37,000 entrepreneurial activities and engaging over 10 million people. These local, national and global events stem from large-scale competitions to small networking gatherings, all geared towards celebrating entrepreneurial success.
