About Global Entrepreneurship Week
Innovation drives economic growth and changes lives—and it’s our entrepreneurs who bring those innovations to life. To move those innovations takes some serious gumption and the right team of founders, funders, designers, managers, developers, marketers, sales leaders, makers and resources. Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is where connections happen and teams come together to get inspired, prepare for the next challenge and celebrate Kansas City entrepreneurship. It’s an international celebration of the makers, innovators, and job creators who launch startups and bring ideas to life. Founded by the Kauffman Foundation in 2008, it has since expanded to more than 160 countries. Here in KC, #GEWKC2018 will be celebrated with more than 170 events and thousands of attendees.

This event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required.
