10 million people are expected to take part in this year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week  which begins today,

40,000 events in 104 countries have been organised, suggesting there’s quite a few committed to addressing the current global economic crisis by getting out there and just doing it themselves.

“Every business starts with a conversation. Start yours today.” is the slogan heading the UK campaign, aiming at creating a “national conversation about entrepreneurship” the aim is to help people connect, share and act upon ideas that may have been lingering in minds for months even years. It is all about action and positivity. Being an entrepreneur isn’t easy but if you can learn from the downs and rise on the ups there is every chance of success.

As one weekend tweeter put it “Make yourself a promise to increase both ‘who you know’ & ‘what you know’ by Friday!”

Here at 123-reg we believe entrepreneurship is a desire, not a science, a commitment not an art. With online business on the constant increase and set to offer a bumper Christmas there’s never been  a better time to give it a try.

Global Entrepreneurship Week is the perfect way to find inspiration. The conversation this week is set to be lively on Twitter and on the hashtag #GEWUK. Have a look at what events are taking place near you too and get involved.

  • Tracks to entrepreneurship


    I think it was thoroughly said. I would also add “entrepreneurship is when the world isn’t enough for you”. I think the desire to innovate, to add something new into this world is also a great source of motivation.

    However, I would also argue that beside this desire to create, there are also great economical incentives behind entrepreneurship. What’s your opinion on this subject?

    Indeed there are economical incentives to be had, but that shouldn’t be the driving force as it is a hard course to choose and the financial rewards may come more slowly. It is also far less-stressful to sit back in a job where you are guaranteed being paid at the end of the month than go it alone, but sometimes as you say that “isn’t enough for you”. Anybody can be a successful entrepreneur but they need to display a certain resilience and mindset to do so.
