Startup Nations Summit

Global Entrepreneurship Network

The Startup Nations Summit (SNS) gathers a network of startup community leaders and policymakers from around the world to help better enable high impact entrepreneurship, especially through the identification of policy levers and smart public sector driven programs.

At this annual Summit, Startup Nations members share ideas about what is working and what is not in their respective environments; connect to research through, for example, the Kauffman Foundation and the Global Entrepreneurship Research Network (GERN); and, enable informal knowledge sharing among economies focused on leveraging entrepreneurs and their startups in order to create jobs, build economies and expand human welfare.

The SNS is co-hosted each year by the Global Entrepreneurship Network, Inc. (GEN) and a public or private sector organization that brings the event to their country.

The SNS is held late November starting over the weekend culminating the annual Global Entrepreneurship Week(GEW) celebration.
