Global Entrepreneurship Week

About Global Entrepreneurship Week

GLOBAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP WEEK is the world’s largest celebration of innovators and job creators who launch start-ups and bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. During one (1) week each November, people are inspired by local, regional and international entrepreneurial activities, designed to assist them in exploring their potential as self-starters and innovators. GEW is celebrated in more than 200 countries (including Trinidad and Tobago). 

YBTT has been the local host of GEW for the past fourteen (14) years. This year’s GEW Activities was officially held from Nov 14 to 20, 2022.

For GEW2022, Our Main Theme Focuses on

“Embracing the Next Generation of Entrepreneurs”
