Global Entrepreneurship Week kicks off in South Africa
Written by Tendai Tambudze
13 November 2012

Global entrepreneurship week kicked off worldwide yesterday. Running from the 12th to the 18th of November 2012, this initiative was started in 2004 in the UK when it was known as Enterprise Week. A few years later, representatives from 37 countries were on hand when Global Entrepreneurship week was officially launched in 2007 by Carl Schramm, president and CEO of the Kauffman Foundation, and Gordon Brown, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.  Today it has grown to be the world’s largest campaign to promote entrepreneurship. This year at least seven million people in 120 countries will directly take part in more than 37 000 activities organised by 24 000 partner organisations.


Global Entrepreneurship week has partners and host organisations in each participating country. South African partner and national host, Endeavor, is hosting a summit, on 12 November, themed, “Creating the right ecosystem to grow and support high-impact entrepreneurs. In addition there are a series of events planned around the country to celebrate and empower entrepreneurs while equipping them with some valuable skills and facilitating networking opportunities.

Entrepreneurs and organisations are encouraged to host events and activities to join in the movement.


The dates are set for the next few years
