National Inspirational Role Models Month
HISTORY OF NATIONAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP MONTH

The concept of entrepreneurship has been a part of our society for thousands of years, bringing innovations to the world while building the economy. Today, entrepreneurs are seen as the cornerstones of a successful capitalist economy. In 2011, President Obama designated November as National Entrepreneurship Month, to celebrate the success of entrepreneurs and innovators. The following year, November 6 was declared National Entrepreneurs’ Day. This was an initiative to motivate and support entrepreneurs by unlocking access to capital and expanding mentorship opportunities.
The word entrepreneurship comes from the French word ‘entreprendre,’ which means ‘one who undertakes.’ The first-ever entrepreneurs were traders and merchants. They exchanged one set of goods for another. With the advent of the agricultural revolution, entrepreneurship experienced a big shift, when humans started to work on farms instead of searching or hunting for food.
As the standards of living continued to grow, the early entrepreneurs began to realize the business opportunities and profitability of innovations. With civilization and the invention of money, capitalism soon became more entrenched in societies, further strengthening the entrepreneurial spirit.
The means of entrepreneurship changed dramatically over the years, but the core objectives for entrepreneurship have remained the same: the innovation and invention of new technologies to solve problems. The entrepreneurs of today are the essence of economies throughout the world. Globalization and modern technology have brought about a new age of competition to entrepreneurs around the world. Cheaper access to means of production has not only made the field of entrepreneurship more challenging but also more rewarding at the same time.

“Entrepreneurs have long demonstrated the resilience, fortitude and grit it takes to generate ideas and solve the problems facing the world. These trailblazers recognize a need and turn dreams into startups, delivering products and services that help drive our local and national economies. Now more than ever, we recognize their contributions and look to their leadership as we pivot and adapt to meet new challenges.
