Global Enterprise Week

Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest campaign to promote entrepreneurship. Each year, it plays a critical role in encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs to consider starting up their own business.

Global Enterprise Week

On the morning of the 17th of November, Global Enterprise Week (GEW) will be kicking off a weeklong festival of entrepreneurship that will stretch the length and breadth of the United Kingdom, giving literally everybody the chance to get involved. From global hangouts to local workshops, online events to one on one advice, GEW have something for everyone, so Get Connected!

Last year more than 300,000 people took up the challenge and took a step towards turning their ideas into reality, and this year is no different.

To mark Global Enterprise Week the Rural Youth Entrepreneurship programme will be visiting Ballycastle High, Co Antrim on the 20th November 2014 to help young people explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.  These workshops are designed to introduce them to new possibilities and exciting opportunities.

Olga Gallagher Director said: “For many young people, the thought of starting up their own business is overwhelming; research shows that aspiring entrepreneurs and start-up entrepreneurs are eager to access practical support.”

“RYE is an awareness raising developmental programme for young people living in rural areas aged 16-30.  It is about unleashing ideas and doing what it takes to bring them to life—spotting opportunities, taking risks, solving problems, being creative, building connections and learning from both failure and success. It is about thinking big and making their mark in their community —doing good while doing well at the same time.”

 “We are delighted that the RYE programme is able to participate in the Global Enterprise Week as it is recognised worldwide and is supported by world leaders and celebrity entrepreneurs.”
