Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. During one week GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators. These activities, from large-scale competitions and events to intimate networking gatherings, connect participants to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors—introducing them to new possibilities and exciting opportunities.
Under the theme #iamchange, GEW Maastricht ’16 aimed to inspire its participants about their role as change-makers as entrepreneurs.
Under the theme #fashionischange Forza Fashion House Maastricht collaborated with designers, creative business minds, LaunchBase , Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts & Design and Inspiratiehuis Maastricht to contribute to and promote GEW Maastricht. Our aim was the same: providing a programme which inspires participants to draw connections and view entrepreneurship through a fresh lens, finding new ideas and building relationships.
