Global Entrepreneurship Week 2018: Events in Wales!
Global Entrepreneurship Week has been named ‘the world’s largest festival of entrepreneurship’. With over 164 countries now taking part and in excess of 37,000 events this week should be imprinted in every entrepreneur’s diary. With events applicable for aspiring entrepreneurs, scale-up entrepreneurs and everything in between.
GEW 2017 was a roaring success and GEW 2018 promises to be even bigger and better!
The themes for this year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week are recognising women, youth and inclusion in entrepreneurship, as well as connecting ecosystems around the world.
With so many events and workshops running throughout Wales during this week we wanted to collate a short list of events that are taking place across Wales for entrepreneurs of all stages and sectors.
Please note: This list only includes a small selection of events open to the public within Wales during GEW.
