Global Entrepreneurship Week began as a weeklong celebration to inspire, mentor, and engage the public around all things entrepreneurial.
GEW is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators, who launch start-ups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth, and expand human welfare.
In Bermuda, the BEDC has extended the activities for the entire month of November.
