The organizations that power the Global Entrepreneurship Network in 160 countries gather for their annual meeting each year at the GEC. It is a chance to examine new programs emerging as part of the network, identify opportunities for collaboration, review the successes of the previous Global Entrepreneurship Week campaign and set the agenda for the year ahead.
