On Oct 31, 2016, President Obama declared November as the National Entrepreneurship Month, and called "upon all Americans to commemorate this month with appropriate programs and activities, and to celebrate November 15, 2016, as National Entrepreneurs' Day."
The holiday is intended to celebrate the American men and women who promote entrepreneurship, business, innovation, and new jobs. It also falls in the Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) which emerged in 2008 as a result of Enterprise Week UK and Entrepreneurship Week USA 2007.
Per Wikipedia, "National Entrepreneurs’ Day was started in 2010 by David Hauser and Siamak Taghaddos, co-founders of Grasshopper, the entrepreneur’s phone system, and Amir Tehrani, entrepreneur and co-founder of The Legacy Foundation. The concept came to fruition after the group went to the White House to discuss Startup America and the Presidential Innovation Fellows, both government programs that support innovation and entrepreneurship. The Kauffman Foundation also supports this endeavor.".
