American entrepreneurs invent and sell fascinating and endlessly useful new products and services, creating millions of jobs and driving American global leadership along the way. This month, we emphasize the importance of creating and maintaining an economic and regulatory environment that helps new businesses thrive and inspires generations of entrepreneurs for the future. For America to be the land of opportunity, we must ensure that entrepreneurs have access to the capital, markets, and networks they need to get off the ground, to finance and build helpful innovations, and to export their products and services around the world. My Administration will continue its work to eliminate unnecessary, burdensome regulations and to fight for a simpler, fairer tax code that eases burdens on doing business and enhances access to capital. We want entrepreneurs to spend less time dealing with red tape and more time growing their businesses. The American Dream should be within reach of all those who work hard. For too long, women, despite hard work and a drive to succeed, faced significant barriers in achieving their economic vision. Today, we celebrate that women entrepreneurs are growing their businesses all over the country. The number of women-owned firms is growing much faster than the national average for all firms. Our Nation has more than 11 million women-owned businesses that employ nearly 9 million people and generate more than $1 trillion in revenue. My Administration is committed to expanding opportunities for women entrepreneurs, including by expanding women’s access to needed capital and networks, because our economy and our communities thrive when women are empowered.

National Entrepreneurship Month, 2017

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                National Entrepreneurship Month celebrates one of our 
                Nation's proudest qualities: our innovative, 
                hardworking, entrepreneurial spirit. American 
                entrepreneurs invent and sell fascinating and endlessly 
                useful new products and services, creating millions of 
                jobs and driving American global leadership along the 
                way. This month, we emphasize the importance of 
                creating and maintaining an economic and regulatory 
                environment that helps new businesses thrive and 
                inspires generations of entrepreneurs for the future.

                For America to be the land of opportunity, we must 
                ensure that entrepreneurs have access to the capital, 
                markets, and networks they need to get off the ground, 
                to finance and build helpful innovations, and to export 
                their products and services around the world. My 
                Administration will continue its work to eliminate 
                unnecessary, burdensome regulations and to fight for a 
                simpler, fairer tax code that eases burdens on doing 
                business and enhances access to capital. We want 
                entrepreneurs to spend less time dealing with red tape 
                and more time growing their businesses.

                The American Dream should be within reach of all those 
                who work hard. For too long, women, despite hard work 
                and a drive to succeed, faced significant barriers in 
                achieving their economic vision. Today, we celebrate 
                that women entrepreneurs are growing their businesses 
                all over the country. The number of women-owned firms 
                is growing much faster than the national average for 
                all firms. Our Nation has more than 11 million women-
                owned businesses that employ nearly 9 million people 
                and generate more than $1 trillion in revenue. My 
                Administration is committed to expanding opportunities 
                for women entrepreneurs, including by expanding women's 
                access to needed capital and networks, because our 
                economy and our communities thrive when women are 
                empowered.

                For our entrepreneurs to thrive, we must protect their 
                innovations, which are the result of their long hours 
                of work and years of training. My Administration is 
                committed to ensuring that American and global 
                intellectual property regimes firmly protect American 
                innovations at home and abroad. Our entrepreneurs have 
                already done great things with that research and 
                innovation--like bringing us the smartphones that 
                connect us more closely, the medicine that keeps us and 
                our loved ones healthy for longer than ever before, and 
                the myriad other technologies that make our lives 
                better, at home and at work. Our researchers deserve 
                their investments of time and effort--their property--
                to be protected against theft and unfair practices.

                Entrepreneurship has played an important part of my 
                life and the lives of my family members. I know that 
                starting and growing a business takes tremendous grit 
                and that facing the unknown requires determination. I 
                also know that taking on that risk makes our Nation and 
                our world a better place. Entrepreneurship is the fuel 
                of our Nation's economic engine, and this month, I call 
                upon Americans to recognize the entrepreneurs who 
                strengthen our economy, drive creativity, and increase 
                the vibrancy of our great Nation.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, 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 2017 as National Entrepreneurship Month. I 
                call upon all Americans to commemorate this month with 
                appropriate programs and activities and to celebrate 
                November 21, 2017, as National Entrepreneurs' Day.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this

                two thousand seventeen, and of the Independence of the 
                United States of America the two hundred and forty-
                second.
