Global Entrepreneurship Week 2020

Innovative, Sustainable & Inclusive Entrepreneurship!

From 16 to 20 November, the Hogeschool van Amsterdam (HvA) will participate in the Global Entrepreneurship Week. The Global Entrepreneurship Week is the largest event that will spotlight innovators and entrepreneurs launching startups that bring ideas to life, boost economic growth and enhance human well-being. GEW inspires people everywhere for a week each November through local, national and global activities designed to help them take the next step in their entrepreneurship. During this week we will highlight all the ways in which students, teachers and researchers come up with creative solutions and sustainable innovations to shape the world of tomorrow through entrepreneurship. An inspiring program for students, teachers and researchers to find inspiration or inspire others to pursue sustainable, innovative and inclusive entrepreneurship.

On this page you will find all the events and all the information you need to get maximum information, to be inspired and of course to participate during the Global Entrepreneurship Week at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam.

The various events that we organize during the Global Entrepreneurship Week are divided into three themes: student entrepreneurship, entrepreneurship education and entrepreneurship research.

Student entrepreneurship

The program for students and student entrepreneurs during the Global Entrepreneurship week focuses on inspiring, developing innovative ideas and providing support to students who are already doing business. A program full of stories from start-up founders and plenty of opportunity to join in the conversation about entrepreneurship or discover it for yourself.

Entrepreneurship research

Entrepreneurship and entrepreneurship education benefit from active knowledge development - for example when it comes to business models, partnerships, failure and recovery, and methods and techniques. To this end, the research program of the Global Entrepreneurship Week offers an insight into all the research that is being done, as well as inspiration for future research.

Entrepreneurship education

During the Global Entrepreneurship Week we organize a program specifically focused on entrepreneurship education. Intended to learn from the inspiring practical examples from our own educational practice. But also to enter into dialogue with the practice about the requirements they set for entrepreneurship education.
