The Global Entrepreneurship Network operates a platform of projects and programs in 170 countries aimed at making it easier for anyone, anywhere to start and scale a business.
By fostering deeper cross border collaboration and initiatives between entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, policymakers and entrepreneurial support organizations, GEN works to fuel healthier start and scale ecosystems that create more jobs, educate individuals, accelerate innovation and strengthen economic growth.
GEN’s extensive footprint of national operations and global verticals in policy, research and programs ensures members have uncommon access to the most relevant knowledge, networks, communities and programs relative to size of economy, maturity of ecosystem, language, culture, geography and more.
GEN helps celebrate, understand, support and connect entrepreneurs and those who champion them.
In Spain, GEN is present as GEN Spain, managed by Autoocupació, a private non-profit organization. Its mission is to promote self-employment as an attractive alternative for exercising people’s professional development and facilitate them the access to the resources necessary to create and consolidate their businesses.
