This November Global Entrepreneurship Week will be celebrated in over 170 countries with 10 million people participating in 35,000 different events in 2019.

There is no doubt that GEW 2020 will have a different shape to previous years, and with more virtual events being planned, we’d like to offer you the opportunity to be part of the UK’s celebration of entrepreneurship and also have the chance of gaining global recognition for your work.

GEN UK is pleased to announce the launch of #GEWUKTALKS as a key part of our #GEWUK2020 campaign celebrating Global Entrepreneurship Week across the UK from November 16-22. Our theme for 2020 is #RESET. Post Covid, entrepreneurship will be the main driver of economic revival in the UK. During GEW we will be sharing stories from entrepreneurs and supporters of entrepreneurship in the following areas:

  • promoting entrepreneurship opportunities in more deprived cities
  • promoting social mobility through entrepreneurship education
  • fuelling economic recovery through entrepreneurship
  • helping those who look to entrepreneurship as a way out of unemployment
