What Are You Doing for Global Entrepreneurship Week?

Posted by: Nick Leiber on November 14, 2008

The upcoming Global Entrepreneurship Week (Nov. 17 through Nov. 23) is a series of events meant to encourage young people around the globe to think creatively and turn business ideas into reality. Backed by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the world’s largest foundation for entrepreneurship, the Week greatly expands upon last year’s EntrepreneurshipWeekUSA to include more than 11,000 activities in over 70 countries. The showcase event in the U.S. is Race to BE., a competition intended for creative young people skilled in film, music, or fashion.

Be sure to check out Steve Hamm’s cool idea, sparked from his conversation with Kauffman’s Bo Fishback earlier this week, on how to go about inspiring kids to consider entrepreneurship over at his Globespotting blog
