Global En­trepreneur­ship Week was cel­e­brated in Novem­ber by the Sur­rey Board of

Trade. This week brings aware­ness to the mil­lions of lead­ers, in­no­va­tors and dream­ers across the world to cel­e­brate the con­tri­bu­tions of en­trepreneur­s to our econ­omy.

There are nearly 95,000 new small and medium sized busi­nesses cre­ated every year in Canada, which is why the Sur­rey Board of Trade con­tin­ues to com­mem­o­rate the en­trepreneur­s who start them through var­i­ous award pro­grams through­out the year, which in­cluded most re­cently the Sur­rey Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Awards, the Sur­rey In­no­va­tion Awards Lunch fea­tur­ing Global Me­dia Gi­ant Steve Forbes, and the Sur­rey Agri­cul­ture Awards Re­cep­tion.

Here are the top 3 ways that en­trepreneur­s are en­rich­ing our lives:

1. En­trepreneur­s cre­ate new busi­ness. Their new ven­tures of­ten times stim­u­late growth for re­lated busi­nesses or sec­tors who sup­port them.

2. En­trepreneur­s add to our GDP. Be­yond the new wealth gen­er­ated from their prod­uct or ser­vices, the in­creased em­ploy­ment and higher earn­ings con­trib­ute to our GDP.

3. En­trepreneur­s help com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment. Of­ten times their money goes back into the lo­cal econ­omy, whether it is sup­port­ing lo­cal char­i­ties, ed­u­ca­tion or help­ing other like-minded ven­tures.
