Global Entrepreneurship Week comes to Cebu

CEBU will be part of another international event this month when the Philippines joins the world for the first time in celebrating the Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) this year.

This event was originally scheduled last November 23 but was moved in light of typhoon Yolanda relief efforts. Organized by, “Cebu Startup Day” will feature successful Cebuano entrepreneurs and policy-makers who will share their insights on startups and other key topics such as traffic problems and disasters.
Speakers include CITOM Executive Director Atty. Rafael Yap, NgKhai President Wilson Ng, Founder/CEO Wesley Chiongbian and Co-founder/CTO Gerald Yuvallos. Highlighting the “Cebu Startup Day” on Nov. 23 at the University of The Philippines – Cebu City campus will be the Startup Product Demos, featuring recent transit app winner, taxi app, and disaster app
Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest celebration gathering 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.
The GEW, founded by the Kauffman Foundation in 2008, has since grown to 131 countries with 24,008 partner organizations planning 33,846 activities that directly engage millions of participants every year.“I was pleasantly surprised to have been invited as partner of GEW Philippines,” founder Tina Amper said. “How can I refuse a global event by Kauffman Foundation? I am proud for to be among the numerous GEW hosts around the world.”
In Pasay, the three main GEW events – Global Entrepreneurship Week Awards, Global Entrepreneurship Week Congress, and Business Startup Expo – were staged on Nov. 20-22 at the Mall of Asia’s SMX Convention Center.
“Cebu Startup Day” will be held on Saturday, December 7, from 10am to 5pm at the Audio Visual Room 2 of the University of the Philippines in Lahug, Cebu City.
