Startup America (and Excelerate is a part of it too!)

5/5
Startup businesses pitch to investors

On Monday of this week, there was a huge announcement at the White House. Here is what President Obama said:

“Entrepreneurs embody the promise of America: the belief that if you have a good idea and are willing to work hard and see it through, you can succeed in this country. And in fulfilling this promise, entrepreneurs also play a critical role in expanding our economy and creating jobs. That’s why we’re launching Startup America, a national campaign to help win the future by knocking down barriers in the path of men and women in every corner of this country hoping to take a chance, follow a dream, and start a business

“Startup America also represents a historic partnership with business leaders, investors, universities, foundations, and non-profits, and we’re urging others to join them in this effort. For entrepreneurs speak to what’s best about America, and in their drive and innovative spirit—in their willingness to take a risk on a bold idea—we can see the future. We can see how America will compete and win in the 21st century global economy.”
