19 November 2012 – Earlier this month, President Obama signed a proclamation declaring November National Entrepreneurship Month and 16 November to be National Entrepreneurs’ Day.

National Entrepreneurs’ Day is the brainchild of Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) members Siamak Taghaddos and David Hauser, co-founders of Grasshopper, and Amir Tehrani, co-founder of The Legacy Foundation.

The idea arose after a trip to the White House to discuss entrepreneurship and issues affecting business leaders. After meeting with administration officials and discussing programs like Startup America and the Presidential Innovation Fellows, both of which encourage entrepreneurship, it struck the EO members that there wasn’t an officially recognized day celebrating entrepreneurs. And with that, the idea for National Entrepreneurs’ Day was born.
