Global Entrepreneurship Week Activities

Screenshot 2020 11 25 Global Entrepreneurship WeekGlobal Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is a collection of tens of thousands of events, activities and competitions taking place each November that inspire millions to explore their potential as an entrepreneur while fostering connections and increasing collaboration within their ecosystems.

Universal Inclusion regularly participates with dedicated activities, hosting events, seminars and panel discussions and supporting events hosted by its partners.

In a comment on this year's activities, Jacqueline Winstanley FRSA,  Founder & CEO said, "Global Entrepreneurship Week is a wonderful celebration of all things entrepreneurship, sparking memories of times spent at the end of the garden path displaying a range of childhood trinkets for sale and the journey travelled since. It is not unsurprising perhaps that my earliest delve into entrepreneurship was inevitable. The fact that it was, as we would now term it, “social enterprise“ was as innate as the desire to create enterprise.

I always set aside time to participate in the activities organised by GEWUK and this year was no exception.  Please take a look at the events we have hosted, collaborated on or attended during this Global Celebration, which  for me is all about Inclusive Entrepreneurship."
