Global Entrepreneurship Week Set for Nov. 10-19

National media to be in town during some of the events

Albuquerque will be garnering national media attention during this month’s fourth annual Global Entrepreneurship Week.

A handful of reporters representing national media outlets including Inc. magazine, Minority Business News, VentureBeat, NetworkWorld and Women’s Enterprise, are scheduled to be in Albuquerque from Nov. 13-15 to experience GEW events and to learn about our entrepreneurial ecosystem, downtown revitalization and other economic development initiatives.

Their visit is the second national media familiarization tour of Albuquerque made possible by Mayor Richard Berry’s National Marketing Campaign. The first occurred in September. Resulting stories can be seen as they publish at

While Albuquerque always strives to celebrate its thriving startup community, the recognition is amplified in a more concentrated fashion during GEW. Powered by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and held in more than 160 countries, this is the world’s largest platform for connection and collaboration.

A host of events, which are still being planned for Nov. 10-19, will spotlight our unique mosaic of innovators, job creators and their supporters who work together to turn ideas into companies and drive economic growth.

It all begins with Startup Weekend, an approximately 54-hour event designed to provide experiential education for entrepreneurs, culminating in demos and presentations.
