About Global Entrepreneurship Week
Global Entrepreneurship Week is a collection of tens of thousands of events, activities and competitions each November that inspire millions to explore their potential as an entrepreneur while fostering connections and increasing collaboration within their ecosystems.
Diversity is a driver of innovation and economies suffer if a nation or group of people are underrepresented or face structural barriers – the world needs more entrepreneurs. Powered by the Kauffman Foundation, Global Entrepreneurship Week has expanded to 180+ nations since its launch in 2008 with 20,000 partner organizations now serving as GEN’s community-building backbone. In the United States, nearly 5,000 events, activities and competitions are planned across all 50 states by colleges and universities, entrepreneurial support organizations, government agencies, economic development groups and more. Locally, Global Entrepreneurship Week is a simple way to support and connect the Fort Worth/Tarrant County entrepreneurial ecosystem to the wider community of entrepreneurs and business leaders nationally and around the world.
