Las Vegas, NV, September 29, 2023 (500NewsWire) -- Las Vegas, renowned globally for its hospitality prowess, is now bracing to highlight its burgeoning business landscape. As Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) 2023 beckons, Las Vegas's dynamic entrepreneurial spirit stands to shine brighter than ever, especially when SMBs make up an impressive 42.2% of the state's workforce.
Dave Burlin, an entrepreneurial titan, has been instrumental in shaping this landscape. His role as Las Vegas's community organizer for GEW in 2022 set the stage, and as the State Coordinator for Nevada in 2023, he is poised to take it to unparalleled heights.
"My passion has always been to connect the people of our city to show the world who we are. GEW is our chance to show how the entrepreneurs and organizations in Las Vegas work together!” emphasized Burlin.
Megan Buckley, taking the reins as the community organizer for Las Vegas, is thrilled about the expansive opportunities this year's GEW offers.
“What many others see as a playground of sorts, I see as my home. A place where the American dream is possible and in more diverse ways than ever. If the pandemic taught us anything, its that Vegas is more than just gaming and hospitality. It’s a big small town where you can start the business of your dreams and have a community to support,” she reflected.
Further boosting GEW's 2023 vision, Nadya Rousseau and Alter New Media came aboard strategic marketing partners, ensuring the event's message reaches as many Las Vegas-based entrepreneurs and thought leaders as possible.
“I am relatively new to this city, having moved here from Los Angeles in 2020, right before the pandemic. It is an honor to partner with individuals like Dave, who are so passionate about business and community, to champion this important event. It is my goal for as many local business leaders to become involved as possible and to do my part in securing strategic partners that can further amplify the event’s message and impact,” remarked Rousseau.
Every November, GEW emerges as a beacon for innovators and disruptors. Through its commitment to championing entrepreneurs worldwide, especially those navigating structural barriers, it resonates with 10 million participants year after year.
“Las Vegas is a city of invention and innovation. The spirit of the city is the spirit of entrepreneurship. Global Entrepreneur Week is our celebration of people coming together, collaborating, and creating,” remarked Ben Laifsky of Hunter Marketing, a local Las Vegas marketing agency and contributing partner to GEW 2023.
Beyond traditional tech strongholds, GEW spreads its influence to every entrepreneurial cradle worldwide. Whether it's a buzzing metropolis or a tucked-away town in an emerging economy, GEW ensures its presence is felt. The myriad events – from intimate local meetups to grand-scale competitions – are a testament to its expansive vision.
Las Vegas's GEW chapter mirrors this global mission, evolving annually as a hub for entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and innovators, thanks to its diverse, community-centric initiatives.
This year, particular emphasis is placed on bridging connections with established event organizers, local entrepreneurs, and seasoned business professionals. The objective is to make the week's events more robust and foster a sense of community ownership. Engaging these critical stakeholders infuses GEW with diverse perspectives, enriching the overall experience for participants.
Furthermore, Dave Burlin, Megan Buckley, and their team are actively reaching out to educational institutions, startups, and local businesses. Their goal? To create a tapestry of events that caters to every entrepreneurial aspiration – from a college student with a disruptive idea to a seasoned business owner seeking to scale. This inclusive approach ensures that GEW 2023 is not just an event but a holistic entrepreneurial movement.
North Las Vegas community organizer Elias Benjelloun is excited about the potential Greater Las Vegas brings to the larger entrepreneurial community.
“While Las Vegas may be renowned for its extravagance, our local entrepreneurs are equally known for their love of community. Beyond the glitz and glamour, Las Vegas thrives as a hub of innovation, where entrepreneurs are shaping a brighter future for communities globally,” he remarked.
