Global Entrepreneurship Week is a celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch start ups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. During one week, each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.

We are a community of doers, makers and creators across Somalia who are helping new entrepreneurs get started and young firms become successful. We also have an innovation hub dedicated for young talented entrepreneurs and tech-makers across Somali regions. Shaqodoon is the leading organization who organizes GEW across Somalia and makes the week lively by getting together variety of groups for networking opportunities and information coordination. Since the first GEW was help, a tremendous impact have been observed in Somalia particularly in the areas of tech , start ups and SMEAs. This year, we expect the GEW to have more impact and reach more towns in Somalia by getting together young talented entrepreneurs and tech makers including woman. We are also expecting to launch  but not limited the first entrepreneurship and innovation hub in Somaliland :HarHub" and a new mobile-based market information system for farmers.
