Celebrating Entrepreneurs: National Startup Day

Yesterday August 4 was the 4th Annual National Startup Day Across America.

According to the website, National Startup Day Across America was created to:

“raise awareness of startup activity and job creation and help catalyze support for your local entrepreneurial community.

On the importance of startups in the U.S.:

“Startup companies act as entrepreneurial leaders, innovators, and job creators within our communities.”

An interesting statistic I read today from an article by Recode:

companies less than one year old have created an average of 1.5 million jobs per year over the past three decades, fueling both local and national economic growth.”

 

However, according to the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Council,Entrepreneurship is in decline.

SBE Council’s CEO, Karen Kerrigan is encouraging elected officials to “commit to policies that encourage startups.

We are fortunate to have a thriving and generous West Michigan Business Culture.

So, why not support a startup today?

Go grab a cup of coffee at a local business!

Spread the Word about an Entrepreneur Doing Good work in our community.

A shout out to some of the great organizations that support small business and encourage entrepreneurship in West Michigan:

Start Garden

LocalFirst

GRIN

GRAPE

LinkedUPGR

Grand Rapids Chamber

Small Business Association of Michigan

– Happy Startup Day!
