Celebrate with the Wolfpack

A Celebration of Entrepreneurship

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is a celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. During the second week of November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.
