                Proclamation 8454 of November 19, 2009

                
National Entrepreneurship Week, 2009

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Throughout our history, American entrepreneurs have 
                been an effective force for innovation at home and 
                around the world. From the airplane to the Internet 
                search engine to new tractors, they have pioneered 
                technologies, products, and processes that have 
                improved lives and shaped the course of our future. 
                Today, they are fueling our economy with their 
                creativity, tireless work ethic, and risk-taking 
                spirit. During National Entrepreneurship Week, we renew 
                our commitment to supporting American entrepreneurs, 
                including social entrepreneurs, who are spreading 
                opportunity and prosperity across our Nation.

                Entrepreneurs are the engine of job creation in 
                America, generating millions of good jobs. Many begin 
                with nothing more than a good idea, and translate new 
                products and services into vibrant businesses. To 
                secure our Nation's future prosperity, we must ensure 
                that our entrepreneurs have the tools they need to 
                survive and thrive.

                My Administration is working to provide opportunities 
                and conditions for entrepreneurs to succeed. We are 
                supporting the flow of credit by increasing loan 
                guarantees and reducing borrowing fees to help more 
                Americans start businesses. We also made the Research 
                and Experimentation Tax Credit permanent to help 
                burgeoning companies afford the high costs of 
                developing new products and technologies. The recently 
                formed Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the 
                Department of Commerce is building on these efforts 
                with new policies and initiatives to unleash creativity 
                and innovation, as well as turn inspired ideas into new 
                employment-generating businesses.

                Our Nation led the world's economies in the 20th 
                century because we led the world in innovation. To 
                strengthen our position in the 21st century, we must 
                rededicate ourselves to harnessing the creative spirit 
                that has made America great.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the 
                United States, do hereby proclaim November 16 through 
                November 22, 2009, as National Entrepreneurship Week. I 
                call upon all Americans to recognize the important 
                contributions of entrepreneurs to our economy.
