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.
The initiative kicked off in 2008, launched by former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Carl Schramm, the president and CEO of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. Since then, it has grown to 160 countries—with nearly 20,000 partner organizations planning activities that directly engage more than 10 million people.
Samriddhi is the official host organization from Nepal in GEW and has been marking GEW in Nepal since 2010 by bringing together people and organizations to help create an environment that allows entrepreneurial behavior to flourish.
