BRIDGE THE BREAKTHROUGH: INNOVATE, COLLABORATE, ADVOCATE
Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is the largest entrepreneurship community in the globe with more than 30,000 members in the network. Once a year, we bring together innovators, entrepreneurs, investors and government leaders in the Greater Washington, D.C. Region and over 7-days to connect, collaborate, share resources and celebrate our thriving Inclusive Innovation ecosystem.
