Welcome to GEW India

The Bharatiya Yuva Shakti Trust, the GEW host in India for 2010 invites you to join hands to inspire young people to embrace innovation, imagination and creativity.





For one week, millions of young people around the world join a growing movement of entrepreneurial people, to generate new ideas and to seek better ways of doing things. Countries across 6 continents come together to celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week, an initiative to  think big; to turn their ideas into reality and to make their mark 

  • Inspire. We introduce entrepreneurship to young people under the age of thirty-five who otherwise might not have considered it as a career path. 
  • Connect. We network young people and organizations across national boundaries to discover new ideas at the intersection of cultures and disciplines. 
  • Mentor. We enlist active and inspiring entrepreneurs around the world to coach and mentor the next generation of enterprise talent as they pursue their dreams. 
  • Engage. We demonstrate to opinion leaders and policymakers how entrepreneurship is central to a nation's economic health and culture, and give them the opportunity to learn about each other's entrepreneurial policies and practices. 

The objective is to sensitize the different sections of the society on the tremendous entrepreneurial potential of youth and the support mechanisms needed to nurture and empower them. This is an opportunity to be part of a forum to network with & interact with young people from educational Institutions, development sectors, leading corporate houses, representatives from Government, NGO’s in the field of entrepreneurship development especially, media, youth associations and to showcase your services and commitment in empowering through growth of new businesses in India.
