What is Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW)?

Each year, Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is celebrated worldwide with tens of thousands of events, entrepreneurship conferences, workshops, connections and competitions in the third week of November. GEW activities have inspired millions of people to explore their potential as entrepreneurs and connect with their local entrepreneurship ecosystem.

Powered by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, Global Entrepreneurship Week has expanded to 200+ nations since its launch in 2008. In Durham, we called it “Do It In Durham” if you are going to start, grow or hire, we want you to “Do It In Durham”. Durham Region is one of the fastest growing regions in Canada and our future is bright!

Do It In Durham is part of one of the world’s largest celebrations of GEW and entrepreneurship. Each year, BACD crowdsources sessions from entrepreneurs and community partners (like you!) who freely, willingly and passionately share their knowledge, insights and experience with the entrepreneurship community.

Entrepreneurs, small business owners, innovators, investors, policy makers, city leaders, small business champions—anyone who wants to know more about entrepreneurship and get connected to Durham Region’s vibrant entrepreneurship ecosystem.

Most of our Do It In Durham sessions are free and open to the public.

Do It In Durham will be hosted at various locations across Durham and Online.

Will you host your session in the community or online? It’s the best of both worlds: we have an opportunity to reunite and unite to celebrate Durham Region’s entrepreneurship community with you (in-person!) AND online across the Region.
