This year, from November 8-14, 2021, Global Entrepreneurship Network will celebrate 13 years of helping millions of people unleash their ideas to start and scale new businesses through Global Entrepreneurship Week. The campaign began in 2008 with an emphasis on inspiring young people to make their mark and has quickly grown to become a comprehensive effort that engages entrepreneurs, investors, policymakers, researchers, support organizations and others collaborating to advance economic growth and innovation in more than 170 countries around the world.
The Multicultural Business Coalition is working with GEN for the second year as the Missouri State Coordinator of Global Entrepreneurship Week. The state coordinators tapped by GEN encourage hundreds of organizations throughout their state to plan and conduct activities during GEW USA. In this capacity, we also play a key role in connecting resource organizations and ecosystem stakeholders to expand awareness and deepen our collaborative activity. We’re working with a great team of Community Organizers across the state, representing Kansas City, St. Joseph, Joplin, Columbia, Springfield and St. Louis.
