Celebrate with the Wolfpack

A Celebration of Entrepreneurship

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is a celebration of the innovators and entrepreneurs who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and help people. 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.
