About

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.

This year it’s all virtual – so anyone can attend, anywhere. And because we’re using video and collaboration tools, we’re able to have these events with partners in other states, cities and countries – and we can all participate.
Lots! Especially in Arizona. The events cover at least 5 themes – and range from speakers, panels, and webinars, to collaborative events, interactive events and competitions with cash prizes.
Opportunities to learn something new; new ideas, new people, new skills. Opportunity to help other entrepreneurs and others who help entrepreneurs. Opportunity to see how others build new ventures and foster great startup communities. Participating helps make Arizona a better entrepreneurial ecosystem, helps make better entrepreneurs, helps grow our economy – and makes a better life for everyone.
Aside from attending the events – you can participate by helping us plan and launch the GEW events. We need marketers, social media experts, speakers, experts, entrepreneurs, eductors, mentors and everyone in-beteween. Visit the “Get Involved” link and shoot us a note!
