… when GEW comes knocking on our doors. Global Entrepreneurship Week has become a date a lot of people look forward to around the globe and Lebanon is no exception. During one week in November, 120 countries will be organizing events between the 14th and the 20th intended to celebrate, inspire and invigorate entrepreneurship. Much more than 7 days, GEW is a movement of people, ideas and dreams.

Lebanon’s GEW coalition is growing bigger and stronger with the addition of new partners to the coalition. In this 2011 edition, 25 partners will be organizing more than 35 activities, starting tomorrow.

And just like last year, the buzz, the spirit of collaboration, the passion about entrepreneurship is still there. But most importantly as partners, we are organizing these events, so that you, the entrepreneur, will be there too.

So if you are starting in business, or looking to grow your existing company, if you want to connect with like-minded peer, or find out who can fund and support you going forward, than this week is for you.

At that time, Global Entrepreneurship Week, the brainchild of the US-based Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, was taking its first toddler’s steps.

Every November, in hundreds of countries, millions of young people around the world would be called to join a growing movement of entrepreneurs who seek to generate new ideas and to seek better ways of doing things.
