Global Entrepreneurship Week 2015: This. Is. Big.

This. Is. Big.

Each year, Northeastern hosts Global Entrepreneurship Week; five full days of events focused on entrepreneurship, innovation, and of course fun! While Northeastern obviously has the most awesome GEW, we’re not the only university to participate. Over 130 institutions worldwide host a GEW on campus, and will be joining in on some of our interactive events to link entrepreneurs across the globe.


The week kicks off on Monday, November 16th with the Husky Start-Up Day Challenge. Join fellow students as they demo their awesome ideas for the semester-long program designed to drive forward amazing innovations pioneered by Huskies. The rest of the week includes a lecture by Jim Ziolkowski, founder and CEO of social enterprise buildOn, a panel discussion on how to build the best founder team ever, and culminates in the incredibly awesome and much-anticipated NEXPO Conference.

Presented by Northeastern University’s IDEA Venture Accelerator, NEXPO is a giant trade show of all IDEA’s best student ventures, both those in the baby stages as well as those that have become full-fledged businesses. It’s a chance to learn about the venture process, demo their products and services, as well as meet the IDEA management team! NEXPO is the perfect place for students thinking about diving into their own venture, and has all of Northeastern’s amazing entrepreneurship resources in one convenient and creative location.
