The Global Entrepreneurship Week is coming back to Buea with a different touch and feel. From 14th to 20th November 2016, several entrepreneurs in the Buea community will join the world in celebrating the Global Entrepreneurship Week. The event which is usually celebrated worldwide is meant to celebrate Entrepreneurs who are making an effort to impact their community in every little way.
Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is an international initiative that introduces entrepreneurship to young people in six continents. GEW emerged in 2008 as a result of Enterprise Week UK and Entrepreneurship Week USA 2007. Since its creation, more than 10 million people from 102 countries have participated in entrepreneurial-related activities during the Week.
This annual event occurs over the span of one week and includes the participation of entrepreneurial experts, policy-makers, education practitioners and politicians. Last year 88 countries hosted Global Entrepreneurship Week and generated over 32,000 activities.
The GEW aims to expose people to the benefits of entrepreneurship through different activities and to motivate them to explore their own entrepreneurial ideas.
All Entrepreneurs who are interested in participating during this event are welcome. Registration is open until 15th November. Interested Entrepreneurs can register here.
