Annual Global Entrepreneurship Week To Create ‘Possibilities’ For Student Entrepreneurs

Penn State’s annual Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) will be held Nov. 12-16 and will feature a variety of speakers and workshops intended to achieve the organization’s mission of creating “unique opportunities for student engagement” and “building upon classroom learning with real-world interactions.”

“We have grown and adapted this event over the years, listening to what our students find compelling and worth their time,” said Linda Feltman, coordinator for Global Entrepreneurship Week.

Feltman said Penn State’s first GEW, held in 2009, featured only two events and only 58 people attended. But the initiative has grown significantly since its founding — in 2016, GEW held events on 15 of Penn State’s campuses and online.

“Every year my faculty partners outdo themselves with new events,” Feltman said. “They invite world-class speakers and plan hands-on workshops.”

A series of speakers will kick off this year’s installment of GEW in the Happy Valley LaunchBox on Sunday. Feltman highlighted Tuesday’s panel event entitled “Flipping the Story,” which will feature Chancellor of Penn State’s New Kensington Campus Kevin Snider and a recent Penn State grad who created his own company, among others.

“GEW is about possibilities,” Feltman said. “And we encourage students to attend, engage and connect.  You never know what might happen when you do that.”
