There are less than 3 weeks until Global Entrepreneurship Week 2015, which this year will run from Monday 16 to Sunday 22 November, and plans to make this year as successful as ever are already underway.
Global Entrepreneurship Week is a week of global activities that highlight and celebrate entrepreneurship and its social and economic benefits, including personal empowerment and job creation.
In the UK, the campaign is co-hosted by Youth Business International and three of YBI’s member organisations: Startup Direct, UnLtd and Virgin Startup; all four organisations provide support to young entrepreneurs to start and grow their own business and create employment.
This year, one of the themes running through Global Entrepreneurship Week is ‘Make it Happen’, encouraging people to turn their business ideas in to reality.
Last year, 2,500 events took place in the UK, and this year’s calendar is shaping up to be just as busy. As a partner, we will be joining in the celebrations by offering a range of activities throughout the week including advice surgeries, market research session and a legal surgery with regional law firm Smith Partnership.
