2020 Global Themes

This year, Global Entrepreneurship Week celebrated four distinct themes: Ecosystems, Education, Inclusion and Policy. During GEW, we highlighted powerful voices, ambassadors and GEN partner organizations that promoted, encouraged and supported the development of entrepreneurs within each of the four spaces.

GEW Education works to share resources, raise awareness and provide skills training to potential entrepreneurs around the world. This theme celebrates the tools and programs communities use to foster entrepreneurship. 


GEW Ecosystems aims to inspire communities to collaborate, and share their networks and markets to help their rising startups thrive. This theme celebrates the shared challenges and triumphs of entrepreneurship communities and hubs around the world. 


GEW Inclusion highlights the work startup champions are doing around the world to minimize barriers and obstacles for entrepreneurs by maximizing inclusion. This theme celebrates diversity in all forms, including women and youth in entrepreneurship.


GEW Policy highlights the work of governments and policymakers to help entrepreneurs everywhere start and scale.
