Happy Entrepreneur’s Day! National Entrepreneur’s Day is celebrated on the 15th of November, 2022. Entrepreneurs are much of the driving force behind innovation and economic growth. So the Bloom Growth™ team wants to celebrate entrepreneurs everywhere for their grit, perseverance and contribution together with our friends at Whale. 🔥
The history of Entrepreneur’s Day
It was Siamak Taghaddos who started a petition in 2010 to start celebrating National Entrepreneur’s Day. He launched a Twitter campaign to convince President Obama to devote a national day to entrepreneurs. Even though the United States is concerned the most entrepreneurial country in the world, there was no day recognizing the hard work they do and their contributions to our economy. Six months and thousands of signatures later, President Obama declared that National Entrepreneur’s Day is celebrated on a chosen day in November.
Who is an entrepreneur?
In the United States, 55% of adults have been entrepreneurs at some point in their lives and 26% have started at least two businesses. But who are these people? The word “entrepreneur” comes from French and roughly translates to “the one who undertakes.” Dictionaries define an entrepreneur as someone who organizes and manages any enterprise with considerable initiative and risk.
Many of you will agree that the most common trait of entrepreneurs is that they are risk-takers. It takes courage to start a business and perseverance to keep going when things might not go as planned.
“Small business and entrepreneurship are the lifeblood of our economy and help innovate a new way of living. It’s about more than ‘just’ creating jobs: it’s about livelihoods and solving real-world problems. They are the true heroes of the story” – Megan Mayfield, Director of Marketing @ Bloom Growth™
We wanted to take not a moment or a day, but a month to celebrate all the entrepreneurs out there. Your grit, perseverance and continuous contributions are the driving force behind innovation and economic growth. Entrepreneurs are the reason so many of us can enjoy products and services every day. These products and services were brought into life by their vision for and drive. While National Entrepreneur’s Day this year happens on November 15th, we wanted to celebrate entrepreneurship as a way of life.
