The Global Entrepreneurship Network leads the global campaign, which is powered by the Kauffman Foundation.
Anybody. Anywhere. Anytime. Organizations can get involved in a variety of capacities – planning events and activities as an official Community Organizer, planning committee, or as a local partner. Individuals interested in exploring their entrepreneurial potential can find a broad array of activities – from local events to global competitions. Entrepreneurs and investors can share their ideas and experiences – face-to-face or online. How you get involved is up to you.
