"The Entrepreneur's Pledge" by Kauffman Foundation

Interesting move by the Kauffman Foundation with the "Entrepreneur's Pledge."

Kauffman Foundation is championing 'Entrepreneurship' for Economic Recovery, and encouring people to sign the "Entrepreneur's Pledge" to join the Entrepreneurs' Movement “Build a Stronger America."

Kauffman Foundation states that once you sign the pledge, you will:
  • Acknowledge the important role entrepreneurs play in society;
  • Support and encourage your fellow entrepreneurs;
  • Share your success story with others; and
  • Strive to give back to your community.



Here's the Entrepreneur's Pledge:
I am an Entrepreneur.

I am following a dream, pursuing an opportunity, taking charge of my own destiny.

I am bringing something of value to society, making a job for myself and for others, and creating wealth that benefits my family, my community, my country, my world.

I am one of a movement of millions of entrepreneurs and innovators who made America great, and who will continue to keep our economy going...and growing.

I am what I am because many people have helped me along on this journey.

Therefore...

I will tell my story, sharing my successes and failures, so that others taking the entrepreneurial path can learn.

I will strive to mentor an aspiring entrepreneur.

I will make my voice heard by those who make policy decisions that affect me and my business.

I will appreciate and celebrate my accomplishments, and the accomplishments of all my fellow entrepreneurs.

I will give back to the society that helped me to be successful.

I will Build A Stronger America.

    This makes me proud to be an entrepreneur and my work of inspiring single moms in that area. I am signing the pledge. Thanks for sharing!
