Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is an annual celebration that unites millions of entrepreneurs around the world. Established in 2008 this week-long event showcases the spirit of entrepreneurship and its transformative power on economies, communities, and individuals. According to National Today, there are 582 million entrepreneurs worldwide, which means that about 5% of the global population are entrepreneurs. In this blog, we’ll talk about what Global Entrepreneurship Week is, why it’s important and how Touchpoints contribute to Global Entrepreneurship Week.
