Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is a global event which focuses on the benefits of entrepreneurship, and helps aspiring entrepreneurs to get ideas, advice and financing. GEW helps them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators. Students, educators, entrepreneurs, business leaders, employees, non-profit leaders, government officials and many others participated in a range of activities, from online to face-to-face, and from large-scale competitions and events to intimate networking gatherings.
GEW in Bahrain is being organised by Young Arab Leaders (YAL), of which I’m a member. The week starts Sunday the 21st of November and runs for a week. For more information on all the events, and how you can register, visit the GEW Bahrain website or call 17 589 855. If you are an aspiring entrepreneur, I highly suggest you attend.
Last year I gave the key note presentation at GEW, this year the key note presentation will be given by none other than Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa, creator of the highly acclaimed The 99 comic book series – the world’s first “Islamic” comic book series.
I’ve not met Dr. Naif, but I heard he’s a great speaker and very inspirational. He’s speaking on the 25th of November in The Sheraton Awal Ballroom at 7:00 pm – don’t miss this!
I will be involved in two events. I’m hosting a dinner table tomorrow Sunday the 21st at the ‘Mentorship Madness Dinner’, at 7 pm at the Capital Club. If you’re at my table you can ask me ANY question on entrepreneurship. You’ll find that I’m quite open and transparent, and I love to help others. Also, on the 24th, at the ‘Start Up Circuit’ I’ll be giving a short marketing presentation, and then I’ll be available at a booth to answer any marketing related question you might have. FYI, I charge a lot for a day of consulting, so you’ll get my expertise for free. There will also be other experts around to help with everything you need from company registration, to financing, to IT and more.
So, if you’ve ever thought of this whole entrepreneurship business, don’t miss this year’s GEW! One last thing, here’s the video of key note I did last year. Look forward to seeing you soon.
