Global Entrepreneurship Week


November 18-22, 2019 – MORE information coming soon

Background of the Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW)

During one week each November, GEW (hosted by GEN) inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them take the next step in their entrepreneurial journey. These activities, from large-scale competitions and events to intimate network gatherings, connect participants to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors — introducing them to new possibilities and exciting opportunities. Global Entrepreneurship Week is not one single event —it is tens of thousands of events, activities and competitions across more than 170 countries.
GEW first entered Switzerland in 2010 in Geneva with one event. In 2018, GEW hosted over 50 individual events involving ca. 3500 individuals in Geneva in one week alone.

Expanding GEW from Geneva to other cities in Switzerland in 2019

Based on the success of GEW in Geneva in the past years, we will bring GEW to Basel and Zurich. We will begin this year with a series of events in both cities and plan to scale the activities similarly to the success story in Geneva.
