About GEW - Palestine
The Global Entrepreneurship Network operates a platform of projects and programs in 170 countries aimed at making it easier for anyone, anywhere to start and scale a business.
By fostering deeper cross border collaboration and initiatives between entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, policymakers and entrepreneurial support organizations, GEN works to fuel healthier start and scale ecosystems that create more jobs, educate individuals, accelerate innovation and strengthen economic growth.
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. Each November, nearly 10 million people in over 170 countries participate in more than 35,000 activities, events, and competitions designed to connect them to potential collaborators, mentors, and even investors.
This is only the beginning and there is much potential for us to work together to shape the next generation of Palestine’s entrepreneurs.
2019 marks the seventh year that Palestine takes part in Global Entrepreneurship Week.
Over the last Seven years, our partners have organized hundreds of activities, including competitions, showcases, panel discussions and training in support of Palestine’s entrepreneurs.
