Global Entrepreneurship Week is a massive campaign to celebrate and empower entrepreneurs in every country and community around the world – especially those individuals who face structural barriers or may have never considered the idea of launching their own startup.

In November each year, about 10 million people take part in tens of thousands of activities, competitions and events focusing on entrepreneurship that inspire them to act and provide them with the knowledge, experience and connections they need to succeed.

Over 20, 000 partner organisations are planning more than 40, 000 entrepreneurial activities that directly engage more than 7 million people worldwide. GEW connects entrepreneurs, students, educators, aspiring entrepreneurs, non-profit organisations, development agencies, government officials, etc. to participate in a range of activities which will be conducted by partner organizations to harness the spirit of entrepreneurship culture.

The closing of so many businesses and loss of jobs brought on by COVID-19 has been a wake-up call. One year later, nations are rallying to reboot our economies for a better, more sustainable and equitable post-pandemic world,” Stephen Gyasi-Kwaw, Country Founder/MD, GEN-Ghana.

Meanwhile, they also are rethinking approaches to build back stronger and regenerate growth. GEN –Ghana invites government organizations, non-profit organizations, private sector companies, senior and junior secondary schools, tertiary institutions, media organisations, religious organizations, and entrepreneurship support organisations to get involved in the celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week in Ghana.
