Global Entrepreneurship Week in Lithuania

Global Entrepreneurship Week 2011 will be launched 14th November. In Lithuania, the event is hosted by ISM University of Management and Economics, which invites businesses and organizations to contribute in promoting entrepreneurship in Lithuania.


Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare.



During one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators. These activities, from large-scale competitions and events to intimate networking gatherings, connect participants to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors—introducing them to new possibilities and exciting opportunities.

The initiative kicked off in 2008, launched by former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Carl Schramm, the president and CEO of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. Since then, it has grown to 115 countries—with nearly 24,000 partner organizations planning more than 37,000 activities that directly engage more than 7 million people.


As it becomes a tradition, GEW activities in Lithuania mainly cover three areas: schools (students and teachers), students and businesses.
