It's the main period in any entrepreneur's calendar and
this year Global Entrepreneurship Week 2012 will
be asking 'Are you ready to pass it on?'
The focus of the week, which lasts from 12 to 18 November,
and spans 100 countries will be on passing along practical help and
advice to early start-ups and people considering launching their
own business. The goal is to create a collaborative, local and
practical week-long event that enables people to learn more about
the wealth of support available to entrepreneurs in the UK.
"We're looking for as many people as possible to get involved
and 'pass on' their best advice - whether through hosting an event
or joining in the discussion via our social media channels," says
Andrew Devenport, CEO of Youth Business International. "By working
together to make a better environment for enterprise, we can help
create businesses that will have a genuine, positive impact on the
UK economy - helping generate income and employment for many years
