Join the conversation
During Global Entrepreneurship Week 2011 we asked entrepreneurs and support organisations to join a national conversation about entrepreneurship!
For aspiring or growing entrepreneurs we wanted to know…
What is it that you need to take your venture to the next level, or to turn your ideas into reality? Are you held back by emotional, technical or financial concerns?
During GEW we asked you to share your anxieties and ask for help on Twitter using #GEWask to find the practical support you need. By adding your location it would go onto our map!
For experienced entrepreneurs or support organisations, we asked…
Whether you are a business support organisation or an entrepreneur with experience under your belt, we know you have the services and knowledge needed to support others. We wanted you to submit a short description of what you can offer.
We asked you to share your offers on Twitter by including #GEWoffer, and specifying your location!
We received nearly 1,000 tweets using the hashtag #GEWask or #GEWoffer. Those with locations were added to our map, below - and reveal that there seem to be more organisations offering support than entrepreneurs asking for support.
Our message to entrepreneurs, then, is: Don’t be too British to ask for help!
