Law for Business

Knowhow - guidance - precedents

18 FEB 2013

Thank you from Global Entrepreneurship Week!

Its official - Global Entrepreneurship Week changes lives. 

This year Youth Business International, in partnership with Barclays, set out to prove the difference that Global Entrepreneurship Week makes to thousands of people.

Thanks to the work of hundreds of fantastic partners, the 2012 campaign reached 279,500 people.

We asked participants to tell us what effect the week had had on them, and we were astonished - and more than a little bit pleased - by the results:

  • 92% of those people attending events said that as a result of Global Entrepreneurship Week, they would be taking steps towards their entrepreneurial goal. That's over a quarter of a million people!
  • Of those people who were not yet entrepreneurs, 64% said that they were more positive about entrepreneurship and the idea of starting up their own business.
  • And 25% of participants - or 70,000 people - said that as a result of attending events during Global Entrepreneurship Week, they had developed or acquired a new entrepreneurial skill.

So thanks to you, the campaign was able to make a real difference to thousands of people, helping them on their entrepreneurial journey!

Andrew Devenport, Chief Executive of Youth Business International, said:

"These results shows the amazing effect that Global Entrepreneurship Week can have on people, whether they have already started up a business or had never even thought of becoming an entrepreneur."

"We'd like to thank all the hundreds of partner organisations who got involved in 2012 and made it such a powerful week."

Find out more about the 2012 campaign.

p.s. This year, Global Entrepreneurship Week will take place 18-24 November. Start planning now!
