Hull City Council, in partnership with Hull Youth Enterprise Partnership has organised a series of events, which will take place 12th to 18th November 2018 to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs. Every day in the UK people talk about making a change in their life and consider starting up a business. By connecting individuals to practical support and those who have done it already, Global Entrepreneurship Week 2018 will help turn these exchanges into the businesses of tomorrow.
