MBB selected to help coordinate Global Entrepreneurship Week
Global Entrepreneurship Network has selected Maui Business Brainstormers to join the group of state coordinators around the nation tasked with driving engagement in activities that help to start and grow startups locally and abroad. Known as Global Entrepreneurship Week, the large-scale campaign is active in 170 countries with roughly 9 million participants in 35,000 activities — ranging from small, casual meetups to massive events and competitions. Global Entrepreneurship Week 2020 will be held November 16-22.
“The partnership of MBB and GEN had already begun five years ago when the first-ever GEW in the state of Hawaii was initiated in Maui County,” shared MBB in a statement.
This new partnership at the state level means broader responsibilities for MBB, yet another step in the evolving scope since MBB was created nine years ago. In its new state coordinator role, MBB will build on its success record, bringing together leaders and stakeholders across the state, including the movers and shakers within MBB.
Organizations interested in getting involved are invited to connect with the “Aloha State Coordinator” at Aloha.GEW@MauiBusinessBrainstormers.org.
