Global Entrepreneurship Week 2014

The 2014 Global Entrepreneurship Week has kicked off with 140 countries hosting events in line with entrepreneurship and business success for the next few days.

The Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is a celebration of innovation and the entrepreneurs behind viable startups that turn into contributors to world economies. Global Entrepreneurship Week is meant to inspire people on a local and global level and in the process provide them with an added push on their entrepreneurial journey.

With all these different activities taking place around the world, Zimbabwe will have its own networking events taking place this week, with the aim of connecting participants to mentors and investors.


This year there are 12 events lined up throughout the week in Harare, Bulawayo, Gweru Nyanga and Binga. A number of partners have thrown their support behind these activities.

These entities include Empretec Zimbabwe, Zimbabwe Entrepreneur Zone, Groupé Süisse Consulting, Stimulus Entrepreneurial Hub, Youth Empowerment and Transformation Trust, Emerging Ideas and TEDxHarare.

The wealth of insight into entrepreneurship and business opportunity that can be gathered from the different activities would be worth exploring for tech startups.

If you are keen on being a part of this you can reach out to any of the participating organisations and hubs or look for more information on the site.
