Ottawa startup community celebrates Global Entrepreneurship Week

Global Entrepreneurship Week Logo

If you live in the National Capital Region, there are a number of events happening this week to celebrate global entrepreneurship. Natasha D’Souza, Web, Social Media and Mobile Consultant at Ottawa’s Virtual EyeSee, blogged about the events on the Startup Ottawa website earlier this week.

If you’re nearby Carleton University this afternoon, you can check out the Technology Innovation Management (TIM) event happening from 4pm to 7pm.

Or, take part in the Lead to Win for women program happening in the National Capital Region tomorrow afternoon. We posted a story last month with details regarding their mentorship program.

D’Souza says “it’s important to get out and meet people, even if you work 100 hours per week as an entrepreneur. Chances are, you just might meet other people with the same challenges that you are facing. Plus, you can connect with potential partners or customers at this week’s events.”

Global Entrepreneurship Week is the world’s largest celebration of innovators and job creators. It takes place from Nov. 14 to Nov. 20, 2011, and honours startups and entrepreneurs who bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. A complete list of all of the Ottawa events can be found on the Lead to Win website
