For the first time since 2018, the Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is returning to Rwanda. The week is a global movement connecting millions of people and takes place each November. This year, the GEW will be hosted by Jasiri to inspire entrepreneurs to unleash their innovation and contribute to our Country’s economic growth. Over the last ten years, GEW has been hosted in 180 countries with more than 10 million people participating in thousands of events.

As a high impact entrepreneurship development program, Jasiri’s partnership with GEW aims to further strengthen the creation of a collaborative entrepreneurship ecosystem in Rwanda. This builds on Jasiri’s mission to attack poverty by investing in, nurturing and empowering a generation of value-driven entrepreneurs who are creating homegrown solutions, impacting their communities and Africa at large.

“To empower entrepreneurs, we must create a collaborative ecosystem in which they can thrive. Jasiri is proud to host this year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week in Kigali and we look forward to having the critical conversations with partners that foster home-grown solutions to better support entrepreneurs,” said Aline Kabanda, Country Director of Allan & Gill Gray Philanthropy.

Jasiri nurtures and invests through introducing entrepreneurship development programs at the two stages of the entrepreneurial journey, from the pre-business phase to the accelerator phase of market-creating innovations. Through Jasiri’s programmes, aspiring entrepreneurs are given the opportunity to harness their innovations with sufficient support and investment.

“Rwanda is one of the best places to do business and an attractive destination for entrepreneurs. Global Entrepreneurship Week offers the chance to reflect on how to support entrepreneurs in granting guarantees, linking them to the regional and continental market and create a vibrant and collaborative entrepreneurial ecosystem. We look forward to working with Jasiri to make the week a success and encourage everyone to attend events during the week,” - shared Richard Niwenshuti, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Trade and Industry.

This year, Global Entrepreneurship Week in Rwanda will be held under the theme, “Unleashing a Collaborative Ecosystem.” The theme aims to inspire communities to work together to create and share networks and markets to help rising startups thrive. It also seeks to celebrate the triumphs and learn from other entrepreneurial communities around the world.

The 2022 Global Entrepreneurship Week will feature events, discussions and panels hosted by Jasiri and partner organizations including Inkomoko, Carnegie Mellon University, Africa Leadership University, Business Professionals Network, Westerwelle Startup Haus Kigali, and the Segal Family Foundation. We are inviting anyone interested in being part of the collaborative ecosystem agenda to attend.
