In November, the Global Entrepreneurship Network will celebrate 12 years of helping millions of people unleash their ideas to start and scale new businesses through Global Entrepreneurship Week. The campaign began in 2008 with an emphasis on inspiring young people to make their mark and has quickly grown to become a comprehensive effort that engages entrepreneurs, investors, policymakers, researchers, support organizations and others collaborating to advance economic growth and innovation in more than 170 countries around the world.
Roughly 35,000 events and competitions will take place during #GEW2019 – connecting nearly 10 million participants to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors. Dozens of world leaders on every continent and a network of more than 15,000 partner organizations support the initiative every year.
Here’s how to get involved!
A Track Captain is the owner or “content creator” of a given industry track at #GEW2019. Track Captains are responsible for putting together 3-5 sessions during the seven-day window.
Have expertise or sage advice in a given industry? Speakers will be chosen by our track captains to speak on a variety of topics. From digital marketing to robotics we have it all so make sure you apply. We read through every single application!
Our volunteers set the pace for everything we do. Good volunteers with great hearts and work ethic are who we’re looking for! Think you’re up for the job?
Think you have a great space? Want to fill it with people passionate about entrepreneurship? Then have we got the opportunity of a lifetime for you.
Global Entrepreneurship Week is wholly financed through sponsorships that leverage the resources and capacities of the entire community – ultimately ensuring that it’s for the community, by the community.
