Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) 2014 began on November 17th and will continue through November 23rd. Observed in 140 countries worldwide, GEW was launched in 2008 to inspire “people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them take the next step in their entrepreneurial journey.”
At Tepper and CMU, the week has included a series of campus-wide events designed to showcase and support the school’s thriving entrepreneurial spirit. Proceedings have included everything from fireside chats and open office hours with venture capitalists to an elevator pitch competition and a startup job fair. Throughout the week, CMU campus experts in new business creation, along with stakeholders in venture capital and community development, have delivered lectures and workshops for aspiring innovators and entrepreneurs.
GEW activities at CMU were organized by the Carnegie Mellon Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE) in partnership with the Don Jones Center at the Tepper School of Business, Project Olympus, the Institute for Social Innovation at Carnegie Mellon University, the Graduate Entrepreneurship Club, the Undergraduate Association of Entrepreneurship, Pittsburgh Tech Meetup and BlueTree Allied Angels.
