This global event is from 12-18 November and will be asking the question ‘Are you ready to pass it on?’

The focus of the Week - which last year involved over 900 partner organisations in the UK, reaching over 213,000 people - will be on ‘passing on’ the practical help and support needed by early start-ups and individuals who are considering taking the plunge. The aim is to create a collaborative, local and practical week, which enables people to learn more about the wealth of support available to entrepreneurs in Leeds and across the UK – vital in a time of continuing economic uncertainty.

Andrew Devenport, Youth Business International CEO and GEW UK host, called for more people to get involved in the Week, saying:
“Global Entrepreneurship Week is now in its 5th year, and continues to go from strength to strength. In 2012, we want to make the week focused, practical and supportive, to help and inspire those people in the early stages of developing their businesses. We’re looking for as many people as possible to get involved and ‘pass on’ their best advice – whether through hosting an event or joining in the discussion via our social media channels. By working together to make a better environment for enterprise, we can help create businesses that will have a genuine, positive impact on the UK economy – helping generate income and employment for many years to come.”
