Colombia and Uruguay are both active countries for GEW thanks to our Global Partner Endeavor. GEW Columbia started Tuesday, November 17, at Universidad de la Sabana, with an event on sustaining business plans. Entrepreneurship financing constraints are among the major hurdles facing potential entrepreneurs around the world.
