ISM Hosts Global Entrepreneurship Week 2021
Join us Virtually for #GEW2021
TROY, MICHIGAN, November 2, 2021 – International Strategic Management, Inc. (ISM) once again has the pleasure of hosting Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) November 8 – November 14 - a collection of events, activities and competitions each November that inspire entrepreneurs around the globe to explore their potential, make connections and increase collaboration within their ecosystems. GEW is a large-scale campaign active in 180 countries with roughly 10 million participants in 40,000 activities – ranging from small, casual meetups to massive events and competitions.
This local event begins with a hackathon and pitch competition where entrepreneurs collaborate with global brands and small to medium sized enterprises for a chance at cash prizes! There will be various activities during our themed business development, workforce development, funding and growth days. We will also host Fireside chats through StartupGrind and a youth entrepreneurship component through our nonprofit, Connecting Dots, in which ISM will run a simulated Global Trade Mission where high school students learn about global trade, STEMpreneurship® and have the opportunity to create and pitch a business plan.
"ISM has been involved with GEW all over the world from Belarus, Uzbekistan, Oman, Jordan and Palestine. We are honored to support our local community benefit from this work, and here in our hometown," says ISM Founder and CEO, Faris Alami, who has been involved with GEW for a decade and traveled around the globe as a keynote speaker
