National Entrepreneurship Week democratizes entrepreneurship by empowering all voices of entrepreneruship across the country through education, connection, and collaboration. NACCE was thrilled to host events each day, in partnership with the entire #NatlEshipWeek ecosystem!

#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.


It takes an ecosystem village to raise an entrepreneur. #NatlEshipWeek welcomes entrepreneurship ecosystem builders across the country to share their resources, best practices, and programs. Whether you're an entrepreneurial support organization, non-profit, or even a local library, if you support entrepreneurship #NatlEshipWeek is the initiative for you.


Prospective, practicing, and past are welcome to engage in conversations, find resources, and identify support in the development of their ventures. NatlEshipWeek uplifts the diverse voices of entrepreneurs across the United States.
