Make National Entrepreneurs’ Day an Official Holidayby Siamak Taghaddos Published in The Hopper on
In May of 2010, David and I successfully petitioned the President to create a National Entrepreneurs’ Day. We couldn’t understand why the most entrepreneurial country in the world didn’t have a day to recognize entrepreneurs.
Currently, National Entrepreneurs Day has been a presidential proclamation each year, meaning it’s recognized by the White House but not an official day like Father’s Day. This year, it’s on November 18th.
We’ve been working with various organizations to make National Entrepreneurs’ Day official. Last year, bipartisan legislation 401 was introduced to Congress with 26 original cosponsors (representatives who signed on before the resolution was introduced).
Now, we’re petitioning Congress to get National Entrepreneurs’ Day recognized as an official holiday every year and we need your help!
This month, we’re celebrating entrepreneurship, and invite you to get in on the celebration:
- Join the coalition. Help us get the word out with your support.
- Come meet us! We’re holding a National Entrepreneurs’ Day happy hour in Boston on November 18th. RSVP today.
- Learn more about National Entrepreneurs’ Day.
- Read Barack Obama’s Presidential Proclamation 2014.
