National Entrepreneurship Month, 2019

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                Throughout our American story, the trailblazers who 
                have been willing to take great risks and chart new 
                frontiers have changed the landscape of business, 
                science, and technology, often setting the global pace 
                for productivity and prosperity. Their relentless 
                pursuit of success has launched new industries, created 
                millions of jobs, and fueled an economy that is the 
                envy of the world. During National Entrepreneurship 
                Month, we recognize the men and women who have turned 
                their passion into innovation, and we pledge to 
                continue fostering economic freedom so the next 
                generation of transformational entrepreneurs is able to 
                unlock their full potential.

                Our Nation is home to the greatest entrepreneurs in the 
                world because we provide an environment in which they 
                can thrive. American entrepreneurs have access to an 
                unmatched research and development infrastructure that 
                includes 8 of the world's 10 most innovative 
                universities. Additionally, our Nation's highly 
                developed private capital markets and other alternative 
                investment models provide our entrepreneurs with access 
                to necessary funding to develop and commercialize their 
                revolutionary ideas. We have a strong intellectual 
                property rights system, and my Administration has 
                aggressively responded to the theft of American 
                intellectual property in order to protect our 
                entrepreneurs' most valuable assets--their ideas and 
                innovation.

                To help entrepreneurs succeed, my Administration 
                continues to reduce unnecessary regulations, bolstering 
                investment and improving global competitiveness for 
                small business owners. We have cut 8.5 regulatory 
                actions for every significant regulatory action added, 
                setting up our country's bold risk-takers for success 
                rather than hindering their undertakings with 
                burdensome red tape. These efforts have helped create 
                ripe conditions for entrepreneurs to flourish, 
                encouraging business expansion and increasing hiring 
                for startups.

                The United States economy and the American people are 
                also continuing to reap the benefits of the Tax Cuts 
                and Jobs Act that I signed into law during my first 
                year in office. Entrepreneurs are one of the biggest

                delivered much-needed tax relief for small businesses.

                20 percent of their qualified business income and 
                business owners can fully deduct the cost of new 
                capital investments, endowing start-ups and small 
                businesses with a greater percentage of their hard-
                earned revenue for further investment. Additionally, 
                this historic tax reform legislation includes a key 
                provision that creates Opportunity Zones, helping to 
                facilitate the necessary funding for entrepreneurs to 
                start new businesses and create jobs in economically 
                depressed communities. The Opportunity Zone tax 
                incentive will unlock resources for entrepreneurs to 
                substantially grow and scale their businesses at 
                unprecedented rates while simultaneously reinvigorating 
                struggling communities.

                The results of my Administration's tax reform and 
                focused deregulation have been tremendous. Since my 
                election, the American economy has added more than 6.4 
                million jobs, and last month the unemployment rate 
                dropped

                to a half-century low. We remain committed to extending 
                economic opportunities further and ensuring that the
