There is a move afoot for a National Entrepreneur’s Day, targeted for March 20th, 2011 This is an opportunity to recognize America’s rich history of entrepreneurship and to ensure a strong foundation for the future.
There is no question that entrepreneurship creates jobs. According to IHS Global Insight, public companies such as Google, Microsoft, and Genentech that were founded with venture capital today employ more than 12.1 million Americans. Current private venture-backed companies such as Facebook, Twitter, and Fisker Automotive employ another half a million people in the US according to Dow Jones Venture Source. The start-up company engine serves as a critical source of new jobs and opportunities for thousands of Americans. Our country’s entrepreneurial spirit combined with access to risk capital will continue to drive this economic recovery
Can you imagine a future without entrepreneurs?
