What is GEW?

Welcome to GEW 2013

Everyone knows that change is needed in Japan, and there are a lot of great ideas as to how to realise that, but people remain isolated and unsure about the next step. Join us for GEW Japan 2013 to bring an end to fragmentation, promote a better understanding of entrepreneurship, and help each other become clear on what the next step should be – it's time to move beyond the talk.


The GEW takes place world-wide every year in November, and is now recognized as the world’s largest celebration of entrepreneurship. By connecting people and highlighting their achievements and goals, GEW sparks big ideas, passionate debate, and provides concrete solutions.
