Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW)

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW)

Would you like an opportunity to take part in something as big as our world? To be inspired? To think big? Well now’s your chance! Fling the lid off your entrepreneurial box and jump into a worldwide movement with entrepreneurs from over 160 countries crossing six continents. It’s Global Entrepreneurship Week and it’s happening November 16-22!

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 bring vibrancy to communities. Last year, over 40,000 entrepreneurial events were hosted over a 7-day period, giving aspiring, emerging and existing entrepreneurs worldwide an opportunity to build dreams into reality.

On our own little piece of the planet, workshops, webinars, and events such as Startup Weekend, will be held in locations all across Iowa giving entrepreneurs many opportunities to unleash new ideas and reach for the stars. To help you make sense of it all, visit our Iowa Global Entrepreneurship Week page to check out the complete listing of events! (But be sure you save some energy to support your local businesses and shop, shop, shop on Small Business Saturday, held on November 28!)
