Made for entrepreneurs: Out of the 1593 attendees of GEW FW, our largest faction was entrepreneurs who made up 66% of total attendees signaling a change from the previous years’ trend.

Using technology, GEW was able to bring entrepreneurs together from multiple continents. In addition to this major achievement, GEW FW offered events in 3 languages that are most commonly spoken in Tarrant County — English, Spanish, and Vietnamese.
