Join us for a day of Inclusion in downtown Mesa on November 14, 2018!
Entrepreneurship is where ideas and ingenuity collide. It takes a variety of people, skills, opportunities, and opinions to grow and succeed.
Entrepreneurship is a positive force that drives innovation, creates wealth and improves lives in communities, cities, and countries alike. We know that not everyone has the same opportunity, so Mesa wants to improve the entrepreneurial climate for all people.
Please join us as for an engaging discussion focused on strategies to increase inclusion in entrepreneurship in Mesa to grow our community together.
Global Entrepreneurship Week is a celebration of innovators who dream big and launch startups that bring ideas to life. Each November, GEW reaches millions of people through local, national and global events and activities. From large-scale startup competitions and workshops to small, community discussions – GEW reaches new audiences and connects participants to a network that can help them take the next step, no matter where they are on their entrepreneurial journey.
