That's the logo for Global Entrepreneurship Week, which is happening in during the week of November 17th to the 23rd. As it says on the Global Entrepreneur's site, "Countries all around the world are joining together to carry the banner of Global Entrepreneurship Week, an initiative aimed at [young] people everywhere. During the week of November 17 - 23, 2008, partner organizations will conduct a range of activities - from simple speeches to comprehensive competitions - designed to inspire, connect, inform, mentor and engage the next generation of entrepreneurs."
Who isn't all for entrepreneurship? Who isn't for bringing smart, talented young people together to innovate tomorrow?
Can you think of any reason every one of us shouldn't be solidly behind this effort? I can't. We should share this site and its message with the entire world... but especially with each and every social networking site we belong to. Savvy Aunties, mentioned in my blog yesterday, should get behind this.
SWOM, Society for Word of Mouth, from Jackie Huba and Ben McConnell, should write about this and start some buzz.
It isn't about me wanting to create buzz. It isn't about reaching your female customer. It isn't about social networking. It's about our kids, and the world we're leaving them. They should have a say in how that world looks and feels. They DO have a say. If you click the logo, you'll see what I mean. Prepare to be impressed.
During the week of November 17th, some amazing and fantastic things will be happening, across the globe. Let's all mark our calendars and plan on participating - at least by sharing this link and this idea.
