Global Entrepreneurship Week


Building Bridges in Entrepreneurship

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is an international movement that inspires millions to explore their potential as an entrepreneur while fostering connections and increasing collaboration within their ecosystems. 

  • Interaction: Networking is a fundamental part of an entrepreneurs journey. A series of speed networking events and even startup crawls where attendees can network and meet people in the local ecosystem who may be able to help connect to ecosystems beyond Basel with resources, provide crowdsourcing solutions or even general support and advice;
  • Sessions: Through moderated sessions such as where to find support, what are policy/government resources, workshops, keynote sessions, panel discussions, hackathon etc exchange of knowledge and information will be available for entrepreneurs wherever they may be on their journey;
  • Insight: Provide thought provoking insight into the areas of entrepreneurship, workforce transformation, employability, career management

Celebrate the first edition of GEWBasel which aims to inspire an agile entrepreneurial mindset, motivate you to have self-determined actions and activate a sustainable economic ecosystem that will allow you to integrate career change and options through your journey as well as maintain a work – life balance.
