Global Entreperenurship Week

From 13th to 19th November, numerous organisations host a variety of events on the subject of entrepreneurship and innovation all over Switzerland. Event organisers can spread the word about their events through the channels of GEW Switzerland.

Each year, GEW inspires and encourages people on a global, national and local scale. The events during GEW range from dinner meetings in a small circle to large-scale matchmaking events, from competitions to workshops. The umbrella goal is to connect and empower founders, investors, entrepreneurs, institutions and other players in the innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem. Furthermore, activities and initiatives are made visible and players are thereby supported in finding potential collaborators, investors, partners, supporters and even customers.

Last year, numerous organisers from the Western to the Eastern and Northern to Southern part of Switzerland hosted events. In total, more than 1500 particpants attended the events. This year again, players active in innovation and entrepreneurship are welcome to spread their events through channels of the GEW Switzerland network. No matter whether once-only or recurring events such as the “Neugründerfrühstück” on 13th November in Berne. Organisations interested in participating or more information are requested to contact be-advanced.
