‘The Startup Centenary’ – Unveiled at the Innovation Showcase, Dublin
Celebrating 100 years of entrepreneurship in Ireland.
GEN Ireland unveils ‘The Startup Centenary’ – Celebrating 100 years of entrepreneurship in Ireland. As we enter into 2016, Ireland gets a further boost as a global startup destination, where entrepreneurship is set to become top of the agenda as part of a yearlong celebration of events, activities and dialogue.
On a prominent platform of national and global engagement linking startups and the broader entrepreneurship eco-system, the recently unveiled, GEN Ireland, Global Entrepreneurship Network is the platform where startups and supporters, enablers and innovators of entrepreneurship are converging ongoing.
The yearlong of celebrations will come to a highpoint during Global Entrepreneurship Week Ireland 2016 (GEW) Nov 16-20, an initiative hosted by GEN Ireland as part of 160 country celebrations of entrepreneurship at the same time.
During this week, The Startup Centenary’s Gala event, ‘The Entrepreneurship Ecosystem Summit,’ will draw together all partners in the national entrepreneurship ecosystem through a series of events across Ireland on Policy, Research, Innovation and Education and Startup Live Sessions.
We are inviting you to engage and be part of the celebrations.
