Become a Global Entrepreneurship Week Bermuda Sponsor!
Entrepreneurs need access to information and resources that are available locally, but in some instances, they don’t have the means or contacts to get the support that they need. The goal of GEW in Bermuda is to help them make that connection. We invite you to join in and support the entrepreneurial eco-system in Bermuda by sponsoring GEW. You can finance prizes for the winners of one of the competition events or be a major partner of GEW as a whole. As we continue to grow bigger and better each year, we hope you can see the substantial impact that this initiative will have on the business community and on your organizational brand.
Our Sponsors are the lifeline of GEW Bermuda. Every year, our aim is that for the month of November, the whole island turns its attention to and celebrates the importance of encouraging, inspiring and connecting existing and aspiring entrepreneurs. Over 3,000 participants attend GEW events, represent their companies, get involved in activities, lead workshops, and/or attend events. Taking into consideration the media coverage of GEW islandwide, we estimate that over 60,000 residents are exposed to our events and to the identities of those who support them. We are only able to make this impact, largely due to the support of our sponsors. Get Involved Today!
See What the Attendees Have to Say
I had never thought that I would get the opportunity to go onto Rocket Pitch and present to an even larger group and win a sum for my business. When I was announced 2nd place winner for the Rocket Pitch Competition, I was proud of myself. Proud of myself for bringing myself forward and for trying. The most important skill to have as an entrepreneur is the ability to try and never give up. Businesses and entrepreneurs have their ups and downs, and it is vital to stay focused and never give up on a dream you believe in.

I have to let you know what a PHENOMENAL job the BEDC team did in delivering this virtual conference. I have attended a few international virtual conferences recently and this was by FAR the best one. The presenters and speakers were all well prepared, the connections were evident, the app was easy to navigate and fun to use and the swag bag was very impressive. This was an enormously ambitious project that made me very proud to be associated with the BEDC.
Great work BEDC team! The conference was great and I’m looking forward to watching the recordings of the sessions I did not watch.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you and congratulations! The event was awesome! You and your team did an amazing job and I learned so much networking with other entrepreneurs and from all the great speakers. Well done! I look forward to next year.
Thank you for including me in the event. It was an honour. I really thought the conference was well done and I applaud you and BEDC for bringing together such an amazing group of talented and inspirational women to network and share ideas around entrepreneurship.
