Global Entrepreneurship Week 2016
By: Galit Zamler

Global Entrepreneurship Week 2016

One week all about entrepreneurship in Israeli schools

Global Entrepreneurship Week 2016 was held all over the world and in Israel between the dates 13-20.11.2016.

Israeli schools that educate for entrepreneurship celebrate GEW2016. These schools encourage entrepreneurship in education and entrepreneurial thinking to prepare students for life.

The Entrepreneurship for Kids Program helped recruiting guest entrepreneurs to come and share the entrepreneurial process that they have gone through with the students, how the idea was born, the realization process, challenges and future plans.

If you are an entrepreneur, contact Galit Zamler, and we'd love to hear your lecture during the year.

These are the schools that noted the Global Entrepreneurship Week in cooperation with the Entrepreneurship for Kids Program:
