GEW Hull Report 2018

Hull City Council, in partnership with Hull Youth Enterprise Partnership has organised a series of events, which will take place 18th to 24th November 2019 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 2019 will help turn these exchanges into the businesses of tomorrow.

Proposed Events during the week in Hull

 

Monday - Make £5 Blossom event where 13 schools will meet up with 13 businesses in order to start a three month programme in which young people receive a loan of £150 from their business partner and get the chance to make it grow through a range of money making activities. This event will also be part of the national launch of Global Entrepreneurship Week. At the end of the period the profits made from business loans will be split between the school and Action for Ashley and Joy for Joel which are this year's charities therefore supporting two young people with Duchenne Musclar Dystraphy.

Hull as a City has always played a significant part in the Global Entrepreneurship Week celebrations and I am delighted that yet again for the sixteenth year they will be taking part
— Ewan Gaffney, Managing Director of GEN UK and GEW UK
I’m delighted that Hull’s Global Entrepreneurship Week is taking the message of enterprise and entrepreneurialism forward. It’s important to recognise and to celebrate the success of pupils and schools and to promote greater involvement across the system, I have seen some excellent initiatives to promote enterprise amongst young people. It’s great to see more schools, working with their partners, driving this agenda in Hull.
— Claire Young Patron Hull Youth Enterprise Partnership
I am pleased to continue my support to Hull Youth Enterprise Partnership as they drive forward their plans to give young, local people experience in enterprise. I hope that the project is a complete success and that we see a wave of young entrepreneurs developing in the area over the coming years and setting up their own successful businesses.
