Los Angeles- November 3, 2021 – World Woman Foundation will celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) on November 8-14 by hosting “Women Entreprenuers Redefining The Global Reset Session”.
GEW is an international movement, powered by the Global Entrepreneurship Network with support from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, dedicated to making it possible for anyone, anywhere to start and scale a company.
“The closing of so many businesses and the loss of jobs brought on by COVID-19 has been a wake-up call for those of us in a position to help,” said Jonathan Ortmans, president of GEN. “This Global Entrepreneurship Week, we are celebrating some of the world’s most creative, innovative, and resilient citizens – and supporting them to become part of a better, more sustainable and more equitable post-pandemic world.”
Each November, GEW celebrates and empowers millions of entrepreneurs in every country and community around the world – especially individuals who face barriers or who have never considered the idea of launching a startup. Globally, more than 10 million people take part in thousands of activities, competitions, and events that inspire them to act and give them the knowledge, experience and connections they need to succeed. A record 180 countries will take part in GEW 2021.
