Northeastern University is holding Global Entrepreneurship Week this November 14th- 17th, with a focus on the university’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, giving students the opportunity to develop their business ideas, learn more about local start-ups, and network with each other.

Global Entrepreneurship Week is hosted by the North­eastern Uni­ver­sity Center for Entre­pre­neur­ship Edu­ca­tion. Although all events are free, registration is encouraged.

Monday events include the Husky Startup Challenge: Demo Day, a staple of Global Entrepreneurship Week at Northeastern. From 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., student entrepreneurs will pitch their companies to fellow students, investors and innovators, designed to turn ideas into real business. Demo Day is the final portion of the Husky Startup Challenge, a semester-long program led by the Entrepreneurs Club.
