GLOBAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP WEEK
Once a year, during one week each November, 160 countries around the world, through the Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN), get together and jointly promote entrepreneurship by focusing on taking relevant content, events and competitions to the small businesses in those countries, with the aim of getting entrepreneurs to grow their businesses and impact positively on the relevant economies. The week also aims to inspire millions to engage in entrepreneurial activity while connecting them to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors. Powered by the Kauffman Foundation, the initiative is supported by dozens of world leaders and a network of more than 15,000 partner organisations.
We are excited to invite you to events for Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) for 2016 which will run from 14-18 November 2016. A number of Global Entrepreneurship Network Partners and other organisations passionate about SME development across Africa will jointly deliver you with content relevant to your SME needs. The programme is planned across fourteen countries in Africa, based on the top needs of SMEs in the African landscape, including discussions about access to finance, markets, skills and technology.
