During one week each November, thousands of events and competitions around the world inspire millions to engage in entrepreneurial activity while connecting them to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors. Since 2010, Global Entrepreneurship Week has actively been celebrated in Nigeria - Powered by the Enterprise Development Centre, the week has engaged millions of young Nigerians with entrepreneurial events and activities.
Recognized around the world, GEW offers GEN Nigeria partners a springboard from which to launch new year-round programs and initiatives. The media attention GEW attracts each November creates the opportunity for GEN Nigeria affiliates to spotlight the founders it has helped, announce new programs and initiatives, and highlight the impact it has had during the course of the year. GEW serves as a community-building season in each nation that reaches out to the public at large to inspire more citizens to engage with the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
