What is Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW)?

Every November, we join millions of people around the world to celebrate GEW by hosting events and competitions that support entrepreneurs and inspire people to embrace entrepreneurship. Canadians take to the streets, the stage, the papers and social media to join their voices with others across 160 countries. We believe that entrepreneurs are the innovators, change-makers and community-builders that are changing the world and we want everyone to know it!

How can you get involved?

Don’t forget to tell us how you are celebrating by emailing your notes and photos to gewinfo@futurpreneur.ca or use the hashtag #GEWcanada
