The 16th annual Global Entrepreneurship Week campaign, celebrating and empowering entrepreneurs everywhere, is officially underway. Millions of people have attended thousands of activities in their communities and cities to celebrate the power of entrepreneurship and innovation in advancing economic growth and job creation. With four more days to go, highlights over the past two days include:
From Botswana, Kenya, Chad and Ghana, to Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bangladesh and India, to Spain and Germany, over 30,000 activities are taking place in 200 countries where over 10million people are celebrating the power of entrepreneurship.
Countries thrive only when entrepreneurs thrive, bearing in mind just how much they contribute to their country’s GDP and job creation. So, we have to continue advancing focused support for small businesses and startups to start and scale successfully.
