Do It In Durham 2022 – the 10th year of hosting Global Entrepreneurship Week in Durham!
Do It In Durham Entrepreneurship Week is a collaboration of Durham’s business support, educational and networking organizations who have come together to host events to encourage and support entrepreneurs, job creators and innovators who create economic growth in Durham Region. Do It In Durham takes place during Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) an international celebration of the makers, innovators and job creators who launch startups, bring ideas to life and advance entrepreneurship.
