President Obama announced several steps that his administration is going to take to increase support for emerging entrepreneurs in the US and around the globe. Some of this initiatives are:
- Investing in women and youth entrepreneurs is the top priority for Obama’s Administration’s global entrepreneurship programs.
- Ahead of his travel to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Nairobi this July, the President issued a call to action, challenging companies, organizations, and individuals to increase their investments in global emerging entrepreneurs.
- Obama announced nine new Presidential Ambassadors for Global Entrepreneurship, enlisting even more of America’s top talent to expand the frontiers of inspiration, opportunity, and development around the world.
- He recognized the creation of the Spark Global Entrepreneurship coalition, made up of leading entrepreneurship organizations who will support his call to action and better connect, coordinate, and communicate entrepreneurship efforts across the globe.
