Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest campaign to promote entrepreneurship. Each year, it plays a critical role in encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs to consider starting up their own business.
In the UK, the campaign is hosted by Youth Business International, a global network of initiatives that help young entrepreneurs to start their own business, in partnership with Barclays.
In 2013, Global Entrepreneurship Week takes place between 18 - 24 November, and the theme is “Take a Step Forward”.
Last year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week was a roaring success with over 7.5 million people in more than 125 countries attending 40,000 events. Here in the UK 279,500 people attended 3200 events around the country.
