Seda Tshwane in partnership with the City of Tshwane, Startup Grind Pretoria and MamelodiBiz is again planning its annual Entrepreneurship Day in line with the Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) on the 18th of November 2019 at the 012Central.

The GEW has several themes, but the one most relevant to the planned event is as follows:

GEW Ecosystems | #GEWecosystems

The Global Entrepreneurship Network and other entrepreneurship support organizations around the world are looking beyond Silicon Valley to facilitate collaboration and partnership between startup ecosystems in promising mid-tier cities. Sharing knowledge and connecting local ecosystem leaders has become increasingly important in building healthy and thriving entrepreneurial communities.

GEW Ecosystems aims to inspire communities to collaborate, and share their networks and markets to help their rising startups thrive. This theme celebrates the shared challenges and triumphs of entrepreneurship communities and hubs around the world.”
