Entrepreneurship is everywhere, especially here on campus! We’re gearing up for a week full of events celebrating entrepreneurship and innovation at TRU.
Global Entrepreneurship Week is a celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. During one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.
Whether you’re thinking about starting your own business one day, or are interested what it might be like, there is an event for everyone!
