   Global Entrepreneurship Week
• November 14-20, 2011
• http://www.gewusa.org/

• Why organize a Global Entrepreneurship Week/USA activity?
   – We need people and organizations to help create an environment that
     allows entrepreneurial behavior to flourish. It is important that young
     people believe in themselves and strive to make their ideas happen, and
     they deserve encouragement and support. The drive to nurture
     enterprising behavior needs business, education, government,
     voluntary organizations and the media to work together—no single
     sector or organization working in isolation can create opportunities on
     this ambitious scale. Global Entrepreneurship Week is a great
     opportunity to showcase what thousands of organizations already do
     to help foster a culture that embraces innovation, imagination and
     creativity. http://www.gewusa.org/
