About Global Entrepreneurship Week

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is the world’s largest celebration of innovators and job creators, who launch startups that bring ideas to life to drive economic growth and expand human well-being. 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 160 countries—with nearly 20,000 partner organizations planning more than 35,000 activities that directly engage more than 10 million people.

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.

Samriddhi Foundation, the official host of the event, took the initiation to host GEW in Nepal in 2010. The Nepal edition of the event has grown exponentially year after year, with a growing group of partners in celebrating this event.

GEW 2016, slated to be held from Nov 14-20, focuses on five major themes viz. Investors, Youth, Women, Cities and Scale-Ups. Samriddhi, together with eighteen other business houses and like-minded organizations is conducting the Nepal edition of the event.
