About Us

GEW Penn State, one of the largest GEW events in the United States, operates independently of the Global Entrepreneurship Network, the worldwide organization that established GEW. Like every other GEW initiative, we are responsible for creating our own events and managing our own organization.

We align ourselves with President Barron’s imperative to create unique opportunities for student engagement, building upon classroom learning with real-world interactions within and outside of the University community.

GEW is a collaboration of a number of colleges on the University Park campus, as well as Penn State branch campuses and locations. All students, regardless of college affiliation or major, are invited to attend any GEW event that interests them.
