The 4th annual Global Entrepreneurship Week kicks off today (November 14th) and runs through November 20th all over the world! Over 100 countries, thousands of partners and activities, and millions of people will be involved in inspiring up-and-coming entrepreneurs, fostering the entrepreneurial spirit, and allowing successful entrepreneurs to pass along their knowledge. Governments, educational institutions, businesses, and the media are all coming together this week to stimulate start-up’s and foster growth among entrepreneurial ventures.

Global Entrepreneurship Week is designed to inspire, establish idea sharing, and celebrate the successes of entrepreneurs worldwide. So much of global growth is stimulated by small businesses, leaders from many countries are eager to encourage a spirit of entrepreneurism in their economies. A large portion of future jobs will come from businesses that are just bursting onto the scene, and the entrepreneurs behind them.
