Entrepreneurship

On entrepreneurship, the Commerce Department already stands front and center in advancing several new initiatives to strengthen America’s place as the global economic leader. It leads the Presidential Ambassadors for Global Entrepreneurship program, which brings together America’s top entrepreneurs to use their stories and knowledge to mentor and inspire young people and start-ups across our country and around the world; and the Commerce Department participates in the annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit, where the world’s foremost innovators gathered to exchange best practices, learn from their peers, and hear the stories of successful and inspiring business leaders.

America has the best ecosystem in the world for supporting new start-ups and business creators, and our entrepreneurial spirit is one of the greatest assets.
