Global Entrepreneurship Week

Global Entrepreneurship Week is November 16-21 2020. It is a collection of tens of thousands of activities, competitions and events in 170+ countries each November aimed at making it easier for anyone, anywhere to start and scale a company. Founded in 2008, GEW inspires millions each year to explore their potential while fostering connections and increasing collaboration within their ecosystems to empower entrepreneurs and strengthen communities.

Diversity is a driver of innovation and economies suffer if a group of people are underrepresented or face structural barriers. Global Entrepreneurship Week reaches beyond traditional startup hubs, envisioning one global entrepreneurial ecosystem open to all. There are four themes for GEW 2020: Ecosystems, Education, Inclusion and Policy. The Pappajohn Center will be hosting various activities and events throughout the week in celebration of GEW.
