GEW 2020 ...

  • Dear GEW Belarus followers, Global Entrepreneurship Week is a platform for entrepreneurs from all over the world to speak up about their achievements and successes, problems and failures, to be heard and supported by the community, governments of different countries, and to declare the importance of growing entrepreneurship in the world.
  • Belarus joined this movement 10 years ago. In November we all will be celebrating GEW Belarus’ 10th Anniversary. We can’t believe in what a terrible crisis Belarusian companies face in 2020. This is, of course, not only a global pandemic, but mostly a political crisis which has affected the entire Belarusian society.
  • We can’t express enough how we are upset about what is happening now in the Belarusian business. Many companies are forced to freeze their activities, suffer losses, tech businesses, which are mobile, relocate their staff and companies, and employees of many companies are detained for far-fetched reasons, but due to their political beliefs.
  • They say that business is out of politics. Perhaps this is so when it comes to the political preferences of certain parties, about certain political views. But when politics affects dignity, human rights, when the regime breaks people down, applies sadistic torture to dissidents, searches company offices, freezes accounts, when companies cannot legally protect their employees - this is not politics. That is why we believe that everything which is happening in Belarus today is a struggle for dignity and, of course, for the right of entrepreneurs to do business transparently, with dignity and free. After all, it is difficult to imagine an unfree entrepreneur. Entrepreneurship is synonymous with freedom by default. Only a free person can afford to take the risks that come with any new business. Only a free person can come up with out-of-the-box solutions to problems and develop innovations.
  • We have been discussing for a long time what the 10th Anniversary GEW Belarus should look like. What are the most pressing topics for business enabling environment? In the end of the day, the victims of the 2020 crisis are not only people, but also businesses and an entrepreneurial ecosystem as a whole. And we are glad that a huge number of people and businesses show solidarity with those who have suffered. Within GEW Belarus events, we will talk about business in an era of change, a turning point in the development of Belarusian business, women's leadership, startups and investments, solidarity, what a new Belarusian business can be in the new economy, and ideas for entrepreneurship in the future.
  • In the near future we will start announcing the topics of the 10th GEW Belarus. Most of the events will go online. If you would like to suggest a topic or initiative, please join our team. If you want to support the Global Entrepreneurship Week in Belarus, join us as a partner. We are looking for envolved businesses, volunteers and all those who are not indifferent to the future of entrepreneurship in Belarus.
