Global Entrepreneurship Week

Global Entrepreneurship Week is a 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, Network GEN inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators. Since 2010, the Global Entrepreneurship Week Germany is hosted by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. With launching the so-called “Gründerwoche Deutschland” (Startup Week Germany), the Ministry wants to create a nationwide network in order to promote the entrepreneurial spirit all over Germany. Therefore, the Ministries of Economy in all 16 states in Germany as well as many business umbrella associations are involved in this campaign. Their task is to involve their members and networks who offer events for (potential) founders and young people, young entrepreneurs. In order to raise the awareness of entrepreneurship and its importance within the society, all these people are brought together.

All in all, the partners offer youth competitions, entrepreneurship fairs, start-up-days, consulting/expert advice and many more. The partners - focusing on youth entrepreneurship - put an emphasis on recognizing and supporting entrepreneurs who have started their own companies or want to start a business. All combined activities in Germany help to inspire, encourage and support the next generation of entrepreneurs in Germany. Since the very beginning, companies of Angels Association Global are part of this organization and these events as a partner. Currently we become once more part of this project of the Ministry of Economics in Germany, now with five companies in 2016.
