Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world's largest campaign to promote entrepreneurship. Each year, it plays a critical role in encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs to consider starting up their own business.

The fifteenth year of Enterprise / Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) in Hull once again celebrated enterprise and entrepreneurial spirit across the city. As every year, this week-long programme was packed with diverse events to support and encourage young people on their enterprising journeys. The focus encompassed whole year groups, primary, secondary and post-16 events, and an international live-link up enabled the sharing of best practice, innovation and initiatives to support entrepreneurship in a different cultural and political context.

Globally, GEW enables millions of entrepreneurial people to unleash their enterprising talents and turn ideas into reality. It brings together university students, school pupils, teachers, entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, employees, non-profit organisations and others to celebrate and promote entrepreneurship worldwide. Now in its eleventh year, more and more countries and organisations are becoming involved. 14 million participants took part in 2017, with 55,000 events in 175 countries. In the UK, there were over 700 events delivered by 150 partners involving over 150,000 people over 168 hours.

We need your help in particular sponsorship to ensure that Global Entrepreneurship Week 2018 continues to inspire young people across Hull and the Humber.
