Global Entrepreneurship Week

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) 2020 takes place from16-22 November 2020. Aspire business director, Mushfiqoh Samodien, will be speaking on the 20 November at 12:30, via Facebook Live, on empathetic leadership approaches to the forced age of tech.

“Global Entrepreneurship Week is a collection of tens of thousands of events, activities and competitions each November that inspire millions to explore their potential as an entrepreneur while fostering connections and increasing collaboration within their ecosystems.

Diversity is a driver of innovation and economies suffer if a nation or group of people are underrepresented or face structural barriers – the world needs more entrepreneurs. Powered by the Kauffman Foundation, Global Entrepreneurship Week has expanded to 170+ nations since its launch in 2008 with 20,000 partner organizations now serving as GEN’s community-building backbone.

Through GEW, GEN seeks universality, striving to be inclusive of individuals and communities who have traditionally faced barriers to entrepreneurship whether minority groups, cumbersome traditional institutions or those pushed to the side by strong competition.”

180 countries. 40,000 events.
