Global Entrepreneurship Week

 GEW

About the Week

Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world's largest campaign to promote entrepreneurship, taking place in 115 countries.

In the UK, the campaign is hosted by Youth Business International, a global network of initiatives that help young entrepreneurs to start their own business. The theme for 2012 is:

Pass it On!

We'll be using Global Entrepreneurship Week UK to pass on the practical help & support needed by early start-ups and individuals who are considering taking the plunge.

Our aim is to create a collaborative, local and practical week which enables people to learn more about the wealth of support that is available to entrepreneurs in the UK.

Through the week, we want to:

  • Encourage those people who are not yet entrepreneurs to think about starting up their own business
  • Improve entrepreneurship skills for aspiring entrepreneurs and start-ups
  • Help people to access practical support - locally, regionally and nationally

We'll do this by passing on: skills, contacts, knowledge, confidence and resources.

Last year over 900 partner organisations got involved in the week here in the UK, helping us to reach 213,000 people through 2,305 activities. Read more about the 2011 campaign and sign up for 2012 at www.gew.org.uk. This year the campaign promises to be even better.

If you're thinking about starting a business, or are in the early stages of running a business, then make sure you attend an event which can help you with your entrepreneurial journey.

If you can pass on some kind of support to the entrepreneurs of tomorrow - whether you have some skills, contacts, or resources, then use Global Entrepreneurship Week as an opportunity to do it!
