Global Entrepeneur Week 2022

Monday, November 14, 2022 - 9:00am - Sunday, November 20, 2022 - 5:00pm

It has been a year since the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded and we now look ahead to the serious work of rebooting our communities and our economies for a better, more sustainable and equitable post-pandemic world. Our national boundaries are as porous to new ideas as they are to a coronavirus, making it imperative for us all to seize the opportunity to: reboot and help those most severely impacted by the economic downturn, rethink together as one global ecosystem and to regenerate lost jobs while helping all economies to rise on an incoming tide of entrepreneurial potential.

Global Entrepreneurship Week empowers nascent entrepreneurs and those who face systemic barriers to starting and scaling their own company. Through GEW, we focus on four distinct theme areas to spotlight impactful voices and organizations -- as well as inspiring activities -- that are helping empower entrepreneurs everywhere.

Global Entrepreneurship Week is a massive campaign to celebrate and empower entrepreneurs in every country and community around the world – especially those individuals who face structural barriers or may have never considered the idea of launching their own startup. Each November, 10 million people take part in tens of thousands of activities, competitions and events that inspire them to act and provide them with the knowledge, experience and connections they need to succeed.

The closing of so many businesses and loss of jobs brought on by COVID-19 has been a wake-up call. One year later, nations are rallying to reboot our economies for a better, more sustainable and equitable post-pandemic world. Meanwhile, they also are rethinking approaches to build back stronger and regenerate growth.

Global Entrepreneurship Week reaches beyond high-tech startup hubs like Silicon Valley, London and Shanghai – envisioning one entrepreneurial ecosystem open to all, including smaller cities in emerging economies and under-represented communities, whether systemically marginalized, geographically hard-to-reach or otherwise pushed aside or left out. National campaigns in 180+ countries are driven by local event organizers who plan activities tailored to their community’s needs.
