EnterpriseCorp Gets in the Game for Global Entrepreneurship Week Events

Global Entrepreneurship Week is a celebration of the innovators and job creators who bring ideas to life by launching startups. These individuals drive economic growth and expand prosperity.  During one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere to explore their potential as self-starters and innovators through local, national, and global activities.  It’s a worldwide celebration of ingenuity and opportunity that everyone can get involved in.

Activities range from large-scale competitions, and events to intimate networking gatherings. There are chances for participants to connect with potential collaborators, mentors, and even investors—introducing them to new, exciting possibilities.

At the heart of it all, GEW is a global movement to inspire people everywhere to unleash their ideas and take the next step in their entrepreneurial journeys.

Once again, the Louisville region’s entrepreneurial community is excited to join in this year’s GEW 2017.  EnterpriseCorp is the catalyst of that community, and we are proud to take the lead in producing and promoting the events happening here.  We, along with several partners, are hosting our own events and activities during Global Entrepreneurship Week.  Our goal is to be the venue for positive—and potentially life-changing—impact on aspiring and promising entrepreneurs. We are here to help move them along the spectrum from simply having an idea to actually launching a startup.  In addition, these activities recognize and celebrate the contributions made in our startup community by local entrepreneurs and we have a stellar group living in and around Louisville.

Join us as we celebrate entrepreneurship at one or ALL of the following events, document your experience on social media, and tag #GEWLOU to get noticed.  You can find more information about each event and register for any of them at www.enterprisecorp.com/events/global-entrepreneurship-week/.
