Global Entrepreneurship Week is a global initiative that teaches young people about entrepreneurship. Roots Millennium Education Group with a 35 year legacy in teaching and learning and in collaboration with Global Entrepreneurship Network GEN, The Indus Entrepreneurs TIE Islamabad, National Incubation Center NIC, Islamabad Chambers of Commerce and Industry ICCI and KAUFFMAN Foundation has organized a 3 day Global Entrepreneurship Week 2021 Celebrations from 17th – 19th Nov 2021 under the theme Ecosystem – Education – Inclusion – Building one global entrepreneurship ecosystem attracting more than 5000 youth and families during the event.
The Global Entrepreneurship Network GEN operates a platform of projects and programs in 180+ countries aimed at making it easier for anyone, anywhere to start and scale a business. By fostering deeper cross-border collaboration and initiatives between entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, policymakers and entrepreneurial support organizations, GEN works to fuel healthier start and scale ecosystems that create more jobs, educate individuals, accelerate innovation, and strengthen economic growth. Global Entrepreneurship Week 2021 or GEW 2021 inspires people everywhere through local, national, and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.
Through Global Entrepreneurship Week 2021 celebrations at The Roots Millennium Education campuses nationwide we hope to have a positive—and potentially life-changing—impact on aspiring and nascent entrepreneurs, moving them along the spectrum from simply having an idea to launching a startup. In addition, these activities help recognize and celebrate the contributions made to our community by successful Pakistani citizens. Furthermore, our goal is to inspire the youth of Pakistan to THINK BIG, whereby highlighting the fact that success isn’t simply the man or woman in a suit, sitting behind the desk; it is the person who has not only excelled in their field but also become a source of shared inspiration for others.
Throughout the event of Global Entrepreneurship Week 2021 , the following themes will take center stage:
GEW Education will help shape the next generation of innovators by offering activities and competitions where they can sharpen skills and meet with advisors and mentors.
GEW Inclusion will highlight the ways in which youth and entrepreneurship are minimizing barriers for entrepreneurs from underserved populations by making inclusion a top priority. It will also celebrate female entrepreneurs, female youth, and investors and will identify resources and share knowledge so that girls and women can connect with one another.
GEW Ecosystem will allow entrepreneurs to collaborate by sharing their communities’ challenges and triumphs of entrepreneurship.
