Penn State To Hold Global Entrepreneurship Week

Penn State will once again hold Global Entrepreneurship Week, a campus-wide series of events and workshops based on innovation and entrepreneurialism. The series will take place from November 13-17, and events are free for all members of the community.

GEW is an annual event that takes place all over the globe, and Penn State currently hosts the largest program in the world. The series seeks to inspire students and community members to delve into what it means to enter into the business world. A “mix of town and gown,” the event will allow students to work both with their own peers, as well as alumni, economic development groups, and workshop leaders to expand their knowledge in entrepreneurialism. Students will have plenty of networking opportunities as they explore different masterclasses and keynotes throughout the week.

Each day of GEW will have a different theme, beginning on Sunday with “Go Freelance!” and moving forward with “Social-preneurship,” “Intrapreneurship Innovation,” “Entrepreneurial Women,” and “Start-up Shake-up,” respectively. The week will also include a number of other special features, such as HackPSU and a presentation by freelance photographer George Steinmetz.

Most of the week’s programs will take place in Paterno Library, Carnegie Building, New Leaf Initiative, and Happy Valley Launchbox — this combined area of space is known as the “Avenue of Entrepreneurship.”
