Entrepreneurship World Cup
The Entrepreneurship World Cup started out as an idea -- and has supported more than 300,000 entrepreneurs in 200 countries. It is made possible by three co-host organisations -- Misk Global Forum, Global Entrepreneurship Network and The Global Education & Leadership Foundation. The Entrepreneurship World Cup is more than just a pitch competition.
In 2017, JA Worldwide formed a partnership with The Global Education & Leadership Foundation (tGELF) in a mutual endeavor to innovate and revolutionize the global education space together and fulfil their missions through shared technology and scale. JA Worldwide and tGELF have aligned their efforts to reach more youth to become entrepreneurial leaders who are ethical, inclusive, and altruistic. We collectively aim to bring tGELF programmes and JA programmes to impact a greater number of young people globally.
