Hudson’s celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), November 8-14, returns for the eighth consecutive year! GEW is the world’s largest international celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch businesses that bring ideas to life and drive economic growth. Under the banner of Innovate Hudson, the Hudson community will celebrate this worldwide event through multiple virtual activities that recognize entrepreneurs within the community and encourage individuals of all ages to foster their own entrepreneurial spirit and potential as innovators. Check out the schedule of events below, and make sure to register!

  • Community Read: Hudson Library & Historical Society will kick off Global Entrepreneurship Week with a “Community Read” of Machiavelli for Women: Defend Your Worth, Grow Your Ambition, and Win the Workplace by Stacey Vanek Smith. According to Guy Raz, host and creator of How I Built This, says “If Machiavelli were alive, he’d undoubtedly tip his hat to Stacey Vanek Smith for totally reimagining his work in a brilliant, entertaining and super-instructive way.” Multiple copies of the book will be available to borrow at the Hudson Library & Historical Society or purchase at the Learned Owl Book Shop. The author will be the keynote speaker on Thursday, November 11. See below to register.
