Have you planned activities for Global Entrepreneurship Week?
Taking place from the 16th to the 22nd of November 2015, GEW sets to inspire people through local, national and international activities that help them discover their potential as innovators. Each year, it plays a critical role in encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs to start their own businesses and some of you are already making plans to ensure that their students are part of it too.
Holland Park School will supplement their participation in GEW 2015 by bringing local entrepreneurs to help raise the aspirations for 300 of their Year 11 students! Richard Northover, Deputy Head at Holland Park School has embedded 5 inspiring role model events in the school’s curriculum for each day of GEW. 20 entrepreneurs, including Pablo Ettinger, founder of Caffè Nero and Tim Sears of Big Data Partnership will talk about the perks of the entrepreneurial journey.
Starting in 2008 from the UK, the GEW has become a global campaign with 150 countries participating in more than 29,000 activities, all set to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs. Last year, over 500 partners hosted around 2,500 events and reached more than 340,000 people across the UK.
