About Startup Grind:

Startup Grind is the world's largest startup community founded in 2010. It brings together resources, connections, and knowledge from over 600 vibrant startup communities/chapters from different countries.

Startup Grind Yerevan Chapter was founded in 2017 and has hosted many amazing founders, seasoned entrepreneurs and ecosystem players since then.

About Global Entrepreneurship Week and EPIC:

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is a massive campaign to celebrate and empower entrepreneurs in every country and community around the world – especially those individuals who face structural barriers or may have never considered the idea of launching a startup. Each November, 10 million people from 200 countries take part in tens of thousands of activities, competitions, and events that inspire them to act and provide them with the knowledge, experience, and connections they need to succeed.

EPIC, as the official affiliate of the Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN), the global host of this week, has initiated an ecosystem-wide mobilization to celebrate GEW in Armenia this year.

As a result of this mobilization, about 20 organizations from the Armenian ecosystem have joined EPIC's call to celebrate this global week in Armenia.

GEW Armenia 2023, from November 13 to 19, will be a week full of different activities - conferences, talks, panel discussions, competitions, showcases, and workshops - with the core goal of celebrating and empowering entrepreneurship across Armenia.

Let's celebrate and empower entrepreneurship in Armenia!
