GIE – GLOBAL INSTITUTE for ENTREPRENEURSHIP

The Global Institute of Entrepreneurship is a social enterprise who mission is to promote the development of Entrepreneurship and Enterprise both within the UK and internationally.  We aim to achieve this by developing workshops, seminars, conference and networking opportunity. Key areas of focus: young people, women, volunteering opportunities,those from the African diaspora and more.

The Global Institute for Entrepreneurship (GIE), aim is to expand the spirit of entrepreneurship across diverse communities by providing mechanisms to address inequality and exclusion of communities and people across the globe that face discrimination and hardship hindering economic growth.

As an organisation we envision a world where people regardless of age, gender, culture, demographic region, disability, nationality, social class or status should have access to quality information, expert training and educational resources to grow and sustain themselves, and their communities through enterprise and entrepreneurship.

GIE believes that entrepreneurship as a tool for social engagement can achieve shared social and economic goals for regeneration and social well being of individuals and communities. We also believe that strengthening the spirit of entrepreneurship can achieve collective social goals, for the enhancement, and development of stronger citizenship which lay the foundation for future generations.
