Global Entrepreneurship Week

NC State is proud to celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week from Nov. 12 - 18, 2018.

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 one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.

Here at NC State, we celebrate GEW with many event offerings across campus. Check back in the fall to see what’s happening during GEW 2019, November 18-24.

In 2018, GEW at NC State was sponsored by NC State Entrepreneurship, the Poole College of Management and the NCSU Libraries.
