GEW Canada: On The Road is a contest that helps give you an inside look at some of the rock star entrepreneurs and small businesses across Canada, as well as showcase some of the great events and initiatives that are happening during Global Entrepreneurship Week in November.

Last year, we had individuals apply from across the nation to become one of our three GEW ambassadors who would travel across Canada to show you the entrepreneurial landscape throughout the week. This year, we’ve partnered with Amway to come back better than ever and send three new ambassadors across the nation.

We want to thank everyone from across the country who entered our 2016 contest. Our panel of judges had a tough decision, but we are happy to announce our three ambassadors who will be traveling across the country from November 14th-20th. Stay tuned by following the #GEWcanada hashtag on Twitter and Instagram.
