Global Entrepreneurship Week: explore your potential

Explore your potential as an entrepreneur during Global Entrepreneurship Week at Carolina Nov. 12-18.

A pan-university effort, the weeklong series of events that reaches across all disciplines and professional schools at both undergraduate and graduate levels aims to inspire students to explore their potential as self-starters and innovators. The events will increase awareness of entrepreneurship activities on and off campus and connect students to resources, knowledge and relationships that can accelerate their growth and impact as entrepreneurs.

Whether studying the arts, sciences, public health, business, journalism, international affairs, social work, environmental studies, computer science or other disciplines, all students are welcome. Faculty and staff are also encouraged to participate. Entrepreneurs in the community, students from other universities in the Triangle, and UNC alumni are invited to attend.

Global Entrepreneurship Week was launched by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and the UK Prime Minister and is the world’s largest celebration of innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. It has grown to 115 countries engaging more than 7 million people.
