A week dedicated to igniting, fostering, and celebrating
entrepreneurship in the Basel region.

Each year in November, the Global Entrepreneurship Week serves as a worldwide event uniting approximately 160 countries, with a central focus on the theme of entrepreneurship.

Welcome to Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) in Basel—a timeless celebration of entrepreneurship! Organized by the Global Entrepreneurship Network Basel association, the GEW provides a dynamic space for learning, networking, and drawing inspiration to foster the entrepreneurial spirit in the region.

Join us yearly for a week of open events, including hands-on and input sessions, meetups and prize ceremonies. This is your chance to explore the rich entrepreneurial history of Basel, connect with like-minded individuals, and unlock your entrepreneurial potential.

Basel's unique history of entrepreneurship, international outlook, and supportive community make it the perfect backdrop for this celebration. Don't miss the pinnacle of the week—the annual Entrepreneurship Gala hosted by GEW Basel.

Check out the GEWs and their programs in other Swiss cities: Lausanne & Geneva

Ignite, foster, celebrate.
