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.
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.
