Global Entrepreneurship Week 2018: Celebrating our Global Community of Enterprising Schools


Since the launch of School Enterprise Challenge in 2011 until today we’ve seen our community of enterprising schools go from strength to strength. Testimony to that are the more than 9,000 schools around the world who have registered to take part in the 2018 edition of the programme.

From 12th to 19th November, the School Enterprise Challenge community proudly celebrated Global Entrepreneurship Week 2018. Held each year, it is a celebration of the global network of individuals united by an interest in social entrepreneurship and positive change.

Enterprising schools around the world

A truly international community: Student taking part in the School Enterprise Challenge 2018 from Nigeria, Mexico, Nepal and South Sudan!

Why do we celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week?

The School Enterprise Challenge not only works to develop essential life-skills, but we also aim to make young people realise they are part of something much bigger: a global movement. All over the world, participants of the School Enterprise Challenge are members of a vibrant, international community of entrepreneurs championing new initiatives and bringing their ideas to life.

Therefore, international celebrations such as Global Entrepreneurship Week accompany our goal of nurturing the entrepreneurial drive amongst young people to enable them to become agents of change within their communities. In this way, we encourage young people to harness their potential to become the leaders and change-makers of tomorrow!

Want to take part in our Global Entrepreneurship Week celebrations?

As we celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week 2018, we are asking schools taking part in the School Enterprise Challenge about what it means to them to be an ‘entrepreneur’. To take part in the conversation, simply share your opinion on this Facebook post!
