Global Entrepreneurship Month

November each year

Global Entrepreneurship Month is the world’s largest celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. Nationwide, Washington State leads the way in recognizing the power of entrepreneurship, from elementary school age to senior citizens.

GEM inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators. These activities, from large-scale competitions and events to intimate networking gatherings, connect participants to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors—introducing them to new possibilities and exciting opportunities.

If your organization, institution or business wants to get involved in next year’s celebration of entrepreneurship, contact the program manager at the Washington State Department of Commerce for more information.
