Global Entrepreneurship Week 2021: November 8th -14th


What is Global Entrepreneurship Week?


Global Entrepreneurship Week is a massive campaign to celebrate and empower entrepreneurs in every country and community around the world – especially those individuals who face structural barriers or may have never considered the idea of launching their own start up. Each November 10 million people take part in tens of thousands of activities, competitions and events that inspire them to act and provide them with the knowledge, experience and connections they need to succeed. At Teesside University there are activities and events happening across the schools, check with your supervisor for more information.
