What is Global Entrepreneurship Week?

Global Entrepreneurship Week is a week long celebration of innovators who dream big and launch startups that bring ideas to life. Each November, GEW reaches millions of people of all ages and backgrounds through local, national and global events and activities. From large-scale startup competitions and workshops to small, community discussions, Global Entrepreneurship Week hosts thousands of events in 160 countries to inspire millions to engage in entrepreneurial activity.

“Entrepreneurship Week Palm Beach brings together thousands in our community to celebrate the next generation of small business & startup founders,” said Palm Beach Tech CEO Joe Russo. “The very existence of the many groups organizing this is proof that our entrepreneurial ecosystem is growing stronger than ever”
