10 Reasons to Submit an Event for Global Entrepreneurship Week KCDavid Cawthon
Get ready to showcase your expertise and awesomeness during the biggest celebration of entrepreneurship—Global Entrepreneurship Week Kansas City (aka #GEWKC). [[CTA]]
GEWKC is Nov. 12-16 this year, but if you want to present, we’ll need your event submissions by Friday, Aug. 31. If you’re interested in throwing your hat (and talent and devotion) into the ring, don’t wait: Submit your event now.
This is the 11th year of everyone’s favorite celebration of the art, craft and splendor of business-making. It’s going to be better than ever but only with your help. If you need a bit more prodding, that’s cool, too.
Here are 10 reasons you should submit an event to Global Entrepreneurship Week:
1. Get in front of Thousands
More than 5,000 people attended GEWKC last year. This is a prime opportunity to get your business in front of startups, established businesses and those interested in entrepreneurship.
2. KC Entrepreneurs Need You
We know your head and heart are jam-packed with knowledge and insight—share your expertise. One for all and all for one!
3. It’s Hassle-Free
You do the fun part (imagining your event and gathering your talent), and we’ll do the tactical stuff (getting a venue and setting the schedule). Yeah, it’s that easy.
4. Meet Like-Minded Business Pros
GEWKC is broken into four tracks: makers and creators, social entrepreneurship, startups and scalers (those looking to grow their business). You’re sure to make great connections.
5. Give Back to #startupKC
Someone helped you at one time or another. GEWKC is an easy way to give back and support the startup scene in Kansas City.
>>>We still have five more reasons, but if you’re ready, don’t wait. Submit.
6. Be Part of the 11th Anniversary of GEW
Who doesn’t like to celebrate? After all, you’ve worked hard. Plus, we’re planning some big events, so you’ll be in great company.
7. Show off Your Creativity
All ideas are welcomed and encouraged. Individual speakers and presenters, panels and workshops all work well. This is your chance to spice up the scene.
8. Add Your Voice to the Conversation around Entrepreneurship
What do Kansas City entrepreneurs need to pay attention to, learn or care about? Let us know. Better yet, let them know!
9. Bring Your Crew into the #startupKC Family
If you know folks who need to be involved in the entrepreneurial community but aren’t yet, #GEWKC is a great way to get started!
10. It’s Gonna Be Fun!
If you’re interested in supporting #GEWKC, but events aren’t your thing, consider being a sponsor or volunteering your time. Anything and everything helps!
It’s time to get the word out. Event submissions are due Aug. 31. If you know anyone who needs to be involved with GEWKC, share this blog post. And don’t hesitate to reach out with questions at this link.
