Global Entrepreneurship Week 2016

Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) is back!

GEW Sault Ste. Marie is taking place the week of November 14th-20th. This is the second year YouLaunch is bringing GEW to the Sault; currently there are 13 events scheduled throughout the week hosted by 10 organizations in our community, all of which we work closely.
