Join GAME during the Global Entrepreneurship Week 2020 to celebrate the spirit of entrepreneurship in India
Everything begins with an idea; but it's just an idea until you turn it into a reality. It's with this view that the Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) started in 2008. GEW is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and further human welfare.
Every year, countries around the globe come together to celebrate GEW for a week in November to inspire people through activities, competitions, network gatherings and introduce them to new possibilities and exciting opportunities.
This year, the celebration will take place from November 16-22, 2020 in around 180 countries with four distinct themes: Education, Ecosystems, Inclusion and Policy.
GAME charts the path forward for entrepreneurs
In India, the Global Alliance for Mass Entrepreneurship (GAME) is joining in the celebration. GAME is an alliance of organisations committed to creating an entrepreneurial movement in India that results in 10 million new entrepreneurs, half of them being women, who will create 50 million livelihoods by 2030.
In line with their objective of creating a thriving environment for mass entrepreneurship in India, they are highlighting powerful voices that promote, encourage and support the development of entrepreneurs.
