This week is Global Entrepreneurship Week and we are delighted to be supporting the event by taking part in a Speed Networking event in Richmond (Richmond Adult Community College) designed to help young people and teachers find out more about self-employment and entrepreneurship.
Global Entrepreneurship Week itself runs from 16-22 November and the theme this year is all about ‘Make it Happen’. It is the world’s largest campaign to promote entrepreneurship and each year plays a critical role in encouraging the next generation of entrepreneurs to consider starting up their own business. There are hundreds of activities on both national and local levels that anyone can get involved in; from challenges to competitions and workshops to webinars. You can search for events in your area by visiting http://uk.gew.co/search-location.
Entrepreneurship is something that our founder Rebecca Newenham feels very passionate about, after setting up Get Ahead VA back in 2010. “I was looking for a career option that could work around my young family and setting up my own business seemed to be the best route, giving me the flexibility and independence I was looking for. I am now proud to run a team of over 30 virtual assistants, many of whom are entrepreneurs themselves. We are all strong advocates of self-employment as a career option that can really deliver. I am delighted to be able to share our story with these young people and hope that we can inspire the next generation of budding business leaders who will fuel our economy in the coming decades.”
