Event Details

The mission of NACCE is to provide leadership and sustainable, scalable resources to foster entrepreneurial thinking and action in North America based on national and international best practices. During Global Entrepreneurship Week 2020, NACCE previewed our new Global Entrepreneurship Center of Practice – and we’re excited to launch this year!

The Global Entrepreneurship Center of Practice is designed to share curriculum and best practices, promote global education, expand entrepreneurial opportunities, and offer support to college leaders across the globe. We are seeking a partner college, and your participation as we build our Global Entrepreneurship Agenda! We want to hear your ideas, understand your needs, and build a Center of Practice that exceeds your expectations.

Join us on Thursday, January 21 from noon - 1:30 pm EST for a focused design thinking workshop and discussion about impact opportunities surrounding Global Entrepreneurship.

Hear more about the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) vision and how the work that we do together supports the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. Participate in an engaging design-thinking discussion to help co-create NACCE’s Global Entrepreneurship agenda; and collaborate with other like-minded participants who share a global vision. 

Earn your Global Entrepreneurship Catalyst digital badge! Earners of this badge have an increased awareness in global entrepreneurship after completing the focused design thinking workshop and discussion. They know the importance and relevance of entrepreneurship from a global perspective, and have demonstrated the ability to bring global entrepreneurship to their local communities. They also learned about impact opportunities surrounding Global Entrepreneurship education and how to leverage the UN Sustainability Development Goals. Click here to learn more.
