Happy National Entrepreneurs’ Day!by Grasshopper Team Published in Entrepreneurship on
Today is a very important day here at Grasshopper Group. At the beginning of this year, our founders set out to petition to the President for a National Entrepreneurs’ Day. In May, we started the first ever Twitter petition, to the first ever President on Twitter, for a National Entrepreneurs’ Day. We wanted a day dedicated solely to celebrate and recognize entrepreneurs around the country, and that’s what we got!
We are proud to say that today, November 19, 2010, we have achieved our goal! We got word of this on Tuesday when the President officially proclaimed today as National Entrepreneurs’ Day. From an idea brainstormed on a chalk board, to an official proclamation from the President, we have a lot to be proud of today.
At Grasshopper Group, the team celebrated today with pizza, cake and a champagne toast! In the spirit of the 1st ever National Entrepreneurs’ Day, Grasshopper Group is also giving back to the entrepreneurial community by giving $5,000 and more to high school entrepreneurs. High school entrepreneurs can apply to win here.
Today couldn’t have been possible without all of your signatures and support, so thank you and Happy National Entrepreneurs’ Day!
