Global Entrepreneurship Week

November 8-14, 2021
Springfield, MO

Global Entrepreneurship Week is a celebration of doers, dreamers, makers, and innovators who create jobs, solve problems, and bring ideas to life.

Innovation drives economic growth and changes lives—and it’s entrepreneurs who bring those innovations to life. Entrepreneurs wake up each day to create solutions that transform our lives.

Global Entrepreneurship Week is our opportunity to celebrate the founders and teams who are making it happen. It’s a chance to be inspired, prepare for the next challenge, and celebrate Springfield’s culture of entrepreneurship.

About Global Entrepreneurship Week

Global Entrepreneurship Week is an international celebration of the makers, innovators, and job creators who launch startups and bring ideas to life. 35,000 events across 170 countries connect more than 10 million people annually in a celebration of innovation and entrepreneurship. The week of events, activities, and competitions each November inspires millions to explore their potential as an entrepreneur while fostering connections and increasing collaboration.

Diversity is a driver of innovation and economies suffer if a nation or group of people are underrepresented or face structural barriers. The world needs more entrepreneurs. Powered by the Kauffman Foundation, Global Entrepreneurship Week has expanded to 170+ nations since its launch in 2008 with 20,000 partner organizations.
