Celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week at Penn State
by Frank T. Koe, Ph.D.
Global Entrepreneurship Week at Penn State will take place at University Park from November 17 to 22, 2013.
Successful and up-and-coming business owners will be on hand to provide support and encouragement to budding entrepreneurs via the broad variety of activities, competitions, and lectures. All events are free and open to students and the public.
Global Entrepreneurship Week is celebrated in 140 countries worldwide. Penn State’s event placed fourth in the country last year, based on attendance and number of events held. With more than 50 exciting events scheduled throughout the week, the Global Entrepreneurship Week at Penn State organizing team is optimistic that the results will be better than fourth place this year (right now we’re #1 in the USA!).
