efactory: Entrepreneur Week

November 12, 2018 - November 16, 2018

It’s finally here! Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is one of our favorite weeks each year. We’ve got a week jam-packed with activities to celebrate and serve entrepreneurs this year.

What’s GEW?
Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare.

During one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities to help them take the next step in their entrepreneurial journey.
