Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare.
During one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.
These activities, from large-scale competitions and events to intimate networking gatherings, connect participants to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors—introducing them to new possibilities and exciting opportunities.
Under the theme #iamchange, GEW Maastricht ’16 aims to inspire its participants about their role as change-makers as entrepreneurs.
We gather different backgrounds, nationalities, and multi-disciplinary fields in a programme which inspires participants to draw connections and view entrepreneurship through a fresh lens, finding new ideas and building relationships. Our objective is to challenge and inspire people to unleash their inner creator and innovator to become game-changers on a local and global level.
GEW is more than just an awareness campaign. It is a platform for connection and collaboration—engaging all players along the entrepreneurship spectrum.
