What is GEW?

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) Japan 2014

IMPACT Japan today announces this years theme for Global Entrepreneurship Week - “TAKE ACTION”. Whether you're dreaming of becoming, or already an established entrepreneur - we’re encouraging all to “TAKE ACTION” - Whether that’s seizing a new opportunity, starting a business, learning a new skill or even taking the first step.

We’re looking forward to working with partners to encourage as many people as possible to “TAKE ACTION” during Global Entrepreneurship Week 2014.

We believe that a national campaign to promote entrepreneurship is vital to making Japan more entrepreneurial. This year, IMPACT Japan will host a program of events that focus on empowering entrepreneurial women and inspiring the next generation of young entrepreneurs.

Join us for GEW Japan 2014 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.
