Calling All Entrepreneurs: Celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week

November 1, 2021

This November 8-14, 2021, Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) will rally almost every nation in the world to empower entrepreneurs and encourage citizens to become starters - finding new and better ways of doing things. In the wake of the pandemic and its impact, GEW 2021 is also a call to action for societies to be resilient and come together in leveraging the power of new ideas and innovation for the benefit of all.
