Global Entrepreneurship Week

Next week, communities around the globe will kick off Global Entrepreneurship Week, a week-long celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. 

Our SourceLink affiliates are no strangers to GEW action. Across Iowa and in Loudoun County and Kansas City—just three examples—SourceLink communities are gathering resources and striking collaborations to make the resources available to entrepreneurs easier to find and access.

IASourceLink celebrates GEW across the state

Celebrating its anniversary as a statewide SourceLink, IASourceLink is promoting entrepreneurial events across Iowa designed to reach every type of entrepreneur, from Main Street to classroom, from test lab to home office.  View the Iowa GEW calendar, hosted by IASourceLink.
