Mogdesign.eu created a new platform for Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) with the help of Drupal 7 and the Aegir replication system. The new platform unified the websites of the 140+ GEW partner countries, with regards to the marketing-design, appearance, communication systems and functionality of the websites, which were previously independent of each other.
The Global Entrepreneurship Week is the biggest international festival of innovators, bringing together their creative ideas that create new jobs, foster economic growth and promote human well-being. This initiative is designed to support young entrepreneurs in particular and was established by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation – the largest American foundation to focus on entrepreneurship, working in partnership with Dell. In 2011 more than 7.5 million people attended the GEW, including guests, competitors, judges, speakers and many others. Global Entrepreneurship Week is held annually in November.
The Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation launched a global website – Gew.co (Unleashingideas.org), which is based on Drupal. The quality of the websites in GEW partner countries varied from high quality, similar to Gew.co, to modest or even non-existent. Therefore, the GEW leaders decided it was necessary to unite the respective websites of all of the 140+ partner countries and so it was necessary to create a platform in order to do this.
The Drupal and Aegir based system helped the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation to save significant amounts of both time and money, as well as reducing the “go to market” time. Adding another country to the database, and launching a new website, is no longer a matter of lengthy development, but instead, takes only a few hours.
