Global Entrepreneurship Week

Sponsored in part by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, Global Entrepreneurship Week — November 17-23, 2008 — is designed to encourage millions of young people around the world to explore their potential as self-starters and innovators. The week's organizers have released a list of suggested online and face-to-face activities (19 pages, PDF) to celebrate entrepreneurship across the globe, including a "Next Top Entrepreneur" game, a documentary entrepreneurship film festival, lunch with a mentor, and the FastTrac business development program. Scheduled activities are listed by country on the Global Entrepreneurship Week Web site.
