Global Entrepreneurship Week van 8 - 12 november


The Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is a collection of tens of thousands of events, activities, and competitions that inspire millions to explore their potential as an entrepreneur while fostering connections and increasing collaboration. The Global Entrepreneurship Network operates a platform of projects and programs in 170 countries aimed at making it easier for anyone, anywhere to start and scale a business.

With so many young entrepreneurial students, we don’t want to miss this opportunity to connect, inspire, and support all students, startups, entrepreneurs, lecturers and researchers during the Global Entrepreneurship Week from November 8 – 12. Especially because entrepreneurship empowers people to be creative and innovative and enables them to make a difference. The GEW will this year be organized for the first time with all universities in Brabant.
