In just a few short months, GEW Fort Worth 2019 will be here to celebrate, educate and connect all those who are passionate about entrepreneurship in Fort Worth. Sparkyard is here to tell you everything you need to know about GEW, GEW Fort Worth and what to expect this November. 

What is Global Entrepreneurship Week?

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is an international celebration of the innovators and entrepreneurs who create startups and bring new ideas to life. Around the globe, 170 countries participate in GEW each year. Every November, Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) reaches millions of people of all ages and backgrounds through local, national and global events and activities. Our local effort, GEW Fort Worth 2019 will offer the opportunity to connect with, learn from and support those working to strengthen the entrepreneurial community here in Fort Worth. Mark your calendars for November 14th-22nd, because you will not want to miss it. 

What is GEW Fort Worth all about?

GEW Fort Worth is here to inspire, connect and engage the local community of makers, doers and dreamers that are promoting innovation to Fort Worth. Last year, GEW was brought back to Fort Worth in full force, hosting 17 different events in 15 locations that attracted over 1,000 people. GEW 2018 was packed with educational events, pitch competitions, networking events and panels. Last year was a great success, but GEW 2019 is set to blow that out of the water. The goal is to double last year’s numbers by hosting over 30 events, in at least 20 Fort Worth locations, that will attract over 2,000 participants. The events will be held in many formats, covering a variety of topics and engaging unique audiences. Whether you are an entrepreneur, an investor, an innovator or a student, there is something valuable to be gained from this week. 

Does GEW Fort Worth have a theme? 

This year, GEW Fort Worth will be breaking down the many events into five tracks. Each event throughout the week will be identified as being a part of at least one track. The track system is designed to help attendees identify which events fit with their ideas and passions. Here are the tracks for GEW Fort Worth 2019:
