Mr. Ocici Launching the GEW 2010 at Imperial Royale Hotel, Kampala recently

Enterprise Uganda invites companies, entrepreneurs, schools, tertiary institutions and universities to participate in organizing activities to mark the Global Entrepreneurship Week from 15-21 November, 2010.  Through GEW’s activities we demonstrate and highlight the importance of entrepreneurship and how it can improve lives, human welfare and build economies.

GEW helps develop young people’s knowledge, skills and networks to inspire them to start and grow sustainable enterprises. The net outcome is a positive impact on participants’ lives, families and communities. Students, educators, entrepreneurs, business leaders, employees, non-profit leaders, government officials and others will participate in a host of activities that are virtual and face-to-face events, large-scale competitions and intimate networking gatherings.

In November, millions of people around the globe will participate in the world’s largest celebration of entrepreneurship. Thousands of events in more than 100 countries will celebrate innovation, entrepreneurship and creativity during Global Entrepreneurship Week 2010 (GEW), Nov. 15-21. Now in its third year, the event will bring together aspiring and inspiring entrepreneurs, helping them embrace originality, imagination and ingenuity through local, national and global activities. 

As the official host institution of GEW activities in Uganda, there will be 3 closing events and an exhibition by SMEs and young entrepreneurs who have been undergoing mentoring by Enterprise Uganda at UMA Conference Hall, Lugogo, Kampala from 17-19 November 2010.

GEW has grown exponentially since its inaugural event in 2008; more than 10 million people in 102 countries will participate this year. In 2009, more than 7.5 million people took part in an estimated 32,000 events across 88 countries. For more information, visit, and follow @unleashingideas on Twitter and Facebook.
