Global Entrepreneurship Week 2021 themes

"It has been a year since the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded and we now look ahead to the serious work of rebooting our communities and our economies for a better, more sustainable and equitable post-pandemic world. Our national boundaries are as porous to new ideas as they are to a coronavirus, making it imperative for us all to seize the opportunity to reboot and help those most severely impacted by the economic downturn, rethink together as one global ecosystem and regenerate lost jobs while helping all economies to rise on an incoming tide of entrepreneurial potential.

Global Entrepreneurship Week empowers new entrepreneurs and those who face barriers to starting and scaling their own company.
