GEW/Australia continues to grow--in size as well as stature--recently securing a statement of support from Prime Minister Julia Gillard.
“Global Entrepreneurship Week is a fantastic initiative that brings together passionate and innovative people who bring ideas to life. It is the world’s largest celebration of innovators and job creators and will expose entrepreneurs to new and exciting opportunities and ways of doing business,” said Prime Minister Gillard.
Led by FRANK Team, GEW/Australia 2012 is set to be the largest celebration of entrepreneurship that the country has seen at any one time. Major partners include the Australian Taxation Office and Commonwealth Bank of Australia – Women in Focus, plus other reputable organizations.
“The goal of GEW Australia is to highlight and stamp Australian business on the global stage in a BIG way,” said FRANK Team Co-owner, Natasha Munasinghe.
In support of GEW Australia, Prime Minister Gillard commented that collaboration through entrepreneurial efforts can help stimulate economic growth, create new markets and create long-lasting social benefits.
“Entrepreneurs not only identify new opportunities, but take advantage of them to help bring new ideas to fruition. Whether they are helping advance the technological frontier or exploring new ways to address old problems, entrepreneurs have a knack for bringing people together and exploring issues in innovative ways,” said Prime Minister Gillard.
