For Immediate Release: November 2, 2016

FREDERICTON, N.B. - In honour of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), an annual celebration of innovators and job creators, Taskforce Fredericton Startup Network has compiled a list of entrepreneurial-related events occurring across New Brunswick from Monday, November 14th to Sunday, November 20th, 2016.

Taskforce Fredericton Startup Network has created a provincial calendar in order to showcase the week, and invites others to add more events and activities happening around the region to help celebrate the province’s vast and varied entrepreneurial ecosystem. The events are based primarily in Saint John, Fredericton, and Moncton. Each event has an entrepreneurial theme and incorporates activities such as networking, information sessions, panel discussions, and workshops.

“In New Brunswick, we understand that fostering entrepreneurship and innovation is a community effort. We wanted to put New Brunswick on the map by showcasing the caliber and quality of business support that this region has to offer, as well as our strong collaboration across communities,” said Tahlia Ferlatte, Taskforce Fredericton Startup Network’s Events Committee Chair, who has taken the lead on this project. “GEW:NB Edition is allowing us to tie into a greater initiative that celebrates and promotes entrepreneurship on a global scale.”

Taskforce Fredericton Startup Network is dedicated to connecting the entrepreneurial ecosystem across Fredericton, and ultimately, New Brunswick. GEW is part of Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN)’s mission to connect the entrepreneurial ecosystem across the world.
