This week, over 138 countries hosted more than 4,000 events designed to strengthen the global entrepreneurship ecosystem during Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) 2013.
Each November, GEW inspires citizens "from all walks of life through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators."
The Reh Center for Entrepreneurship at Clarkson University partnered with GEW to bring these events to the North Country for the first time.
"Partnering with Global Entrepreneurship Week provides a global connection and inspiration for entrepreneurs across our community," said Erin Draper, director of operations at the Reh Center. "Excitement is building on campus and we have seen an increase in student ideas and start-ups as a result."
"The events during Global Entrepreneurship Week will serve as a platform to learn valuable lessons and develop relationships that could possibly change your life and I couldn't be more grateful to be a part of it," said Joseph Siracuse '15, an engineering and management major from Clarence, N.Y.
Alumnus Tom Hall (MBA 1983), president and CEO of First Choice Emergency Room, delivered the keynote address, while other activities, like luncheons, student pitches, and the Sigma Nu Tau Entrepreneurship Honor Society induction, were designed to drive partnerships, conversations and awareness of entrepreneurial activity.
