Now in its 10th year, Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is an international 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.
This year’s event runs November 13 – 19 and you’d better bet we’re kind of excited about it, here at Vibe. To mark the occasion, we’ve organized a full slate of events and activities, in addition to those being put on by other local organizations.
Whether you’re looking to learn new skills, get inspired or just connect with other business owners or aspiring entrepreneurs, there’s sure to be an event that’s perfect for you.
