The purpose of this study is to understand the impact of characteristics of registrants on the probability of attending to Global Entrepreneurship Week Event that intends to build networks, promote connections between entrepreneurs, academicians, investors, and policymakers. Despite the popularity of entrepreneurial activities and their positive impact on economic growth and development, there is not much emphasis on the factors that affect the likelihood of attending an international entrepreneurial event that fosters connections, helps new companies launch and existing companies' scale. The data collected through an online registration system indicates that early registration, attending the event first time, and working for a startup, small business, or entrepreneurial venture decrease the likelihood of attending the event, whereas prior attendance to a similar event increases the probability of attending the current event. Our results indicate that residing outside the United States is not a significant factor among the registrants who work for a startup, startup, small business, or entrepreneurial venture.
