New Sketchbook Video Illustrates GEW Impact

on October 22, 2012

Global Entrepreneurship Week is an idea bigger than the thousands of communities around the world that make it up. That idea and the benefits of engaging a global community working to advance entrepreneurship are the subject of the latest Kauffman Foundation animated sketchbook video released last week.

"The world needs more entrepreneurs," says Global Entrepreneurship Week President and Kauffman Senior Fellow Jonathan Ortmans, who narrates the video. "GEW offers the opportunity to network, meet mentors, experience a boot camp, find out if you have an interest in being an entrepreneur or working for a startup and learn from other countries. All in one week."

Global Entrepreneurship Week 2012, the fifth anniversary of the world's largest celebration of entrepreneurship, will be held November 12–18 to encourage existing and aspiring entrepreneurs to unleash innovative ideas, using the marketplace to improve lives and make their mark.

The video illustrates the myriad experiences available to participants and the cultural implications of thousands of people around the world focusing on solving world challenges.
