What is National Entrepreneurship Week?
#NatlEshipWeek democratizes entrepreneurship by
empowering all voices of entrepreneurship across the
country through education, connection, and collaboration.
#NatlEshipWeek envisions a national entrepreneurship ecosystem that is as diverse and rich as the citizens that are part of it.
#NatlEshipWeek offers a rich network of partners that engage, educate, and build equitable access to America's Entrepreneurship Ecosystem. This grassroots initiative is made stronger by diverse partners who collaborate, coordinate, and create their own activities and engagement events. The annual event has three primary stakeholder groups.
From cradle to career, #NatlEshipWeek recognizes the importance of working with educators to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs. We welcome grade school, community college, higher education, and non-traditional educators, to join the conversation.
