Speakers Corner celebrates Global Entrepreneurship Week with a host of the most charismatic and inspirational speakers available for corporate events, including Marc Koska, Jo Fairley, Fraser Doherty and Gordon D’Silva.
Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest celebration of innovators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare.
Every November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as innovators. The 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 project was launched by former Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Carl Schramm, president and CEO of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, in 2008. Since then, it has expanded to 115 countries—with nearly 24,000 partner organizations planning more than 37,000 activities.
Leaders around the world are hoping to reinvigorate their economies by focusing on ways to stimulate new firm formation. Global Entrepreneurship Week benefits from the participation and support of leadership on every continent, including: President Barack Obama (US); Prime Minister David Cameron (UK); Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (Israel); President Anibal Cavaco Silva (Portugal); Prime Minister Stephen Harper (Canada); President John Atta Mills (Ghana), all focused on advancing economic growth.
