What is GEW

Global Entrepreneurship Week is the largest celebration of innovators and entrepreneurs in the world.  Sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation, more than 130 countries participate in Global Entrepreneurship Week each year. Through various programs and events held by businesses, organizations, and academic institutions, GEW week stimulates entrepreneurial spirit – inspiring people to create their own startup companies and giving existing entrepreneurs an opportunity to share their expertise.

The 2014 celebration kicks off on November 17th. Northeastern will participate with a number of interactive events hosted by the Northeastern University Center for Entrepreneurship Education. Global Entrepreneurship Week provides us with a wonderful opportunity to showcase our work here at Northeastern.
