[Press Release] Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is a celebration of the innovators and job creators, who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare.
During one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators. This celebration of entrepreneurs takes place every November with over 170 countries, impacting 10 million people annually and has attracted global leaders, conglomerates, start ups, the youth and policy makers.
The St Lucia Chamber of Commerce has been the host organization of GEW for the last 7 years and each year there has been a tremendous increase in partnerships. In collaboration with over 45 partner organizations and individuals a series of activities is being planned for 2018 GEW St Lucia celebrations. Through a series of GEW meetings which started in early July 2018 partners excited about the event converge at the Bay Gardens Hotel to discuss, network, share best practices, idea-generation and plan for a successful GEW 2018.
Global Entrepreneurship Week will run from November 12 – 19th 2018 under the theme #GEWYOUTH. This will coincide with The Ministry of Commerce Business month which is also being celebrated during the month of November. Be a part of this global event by attending an activity, plan an event, partner, mentor or volunteer at any of the activities.
We look forward to seeing you at one of the many Global Entrepreneurship Week event happening nationwide. Some of the many activities include Get in the Ring, RBC Royal Bank Entrepreneurs Forum, GEW Gospel Fest, SLUDTERA Start Up Huddle, DECA Idea Challenge, SALCC Exhibition and Chamber of Commerce Investment Round Table.
