With the help of experienced entrepreneurs and companies, and through events like Global Entrepreneurship Week…, we can ensure our startups have access to the resources, connections and partnerships that will promote their success.”
President Barack Obama, United States

Since its creation in the UK, Global Entrepreneurship Week has spread to over 130 countries around the world.

From Albania to Zimbabwe, the week sees tens of thousands of activities taking place to power a new wave of startups around the world - washing away barriers to entrepreneurship and enabling others in their wake to unleash their own ideas and turn them into new ventures.

The US based Kauffman Foundation leads this global movement, and Youth Business International is proud to have played an important role in its success. As well as hosting the week in the UK, we host the campaign in 10 other countries through our global network:

  • Barbados
  • Belize
  • Bhutan
  • Canada
  • Dominica
  • India
  • Paraguay
  • Trinidad & Tobago
  • Uganda
  • Ukraine
