National Entrepreneurship Month - Honoring the Spirit of Entrepreneurship
3 Nov 2022
Texas is a pro-business climate providing incentives for businesses that form in the state to stimulate economic growth. Entrepreneurs have access to resources and tools to succeed in the Greater Katy Area.
Katy Area Economic Development Council celebrates local entrepreneurs and their accomplishments this November for National Entrepreneurship Month! We are proud to provide support for the entrepreneurs and small business owners who fuel the heart and growth of our local job market. Entrepreneurs throughout Katy, Texas are busy creating the newest products and innovations and strengthening our economy.
Business accomplishments in Texas and the Katy Area support the ranking of the United States as the world’s most entrepreneurial country in 2021. StartupBlink’s Global Startup Ecosystem Index 2022 ranked the U.S. as the country with the most business startups and a robust startup ecosystem.
These U.S. startups often develop into small businesses. Small businesses made up 99.9 percent of U.S. businesses in 2021, so it’s essential to give those nearby mom-and-pop shops the recognition they deserve. That’s 32.5 million small businesses in the U.S. alone.
What is National Entrepreneurship Month?
National Entrepreneurship Month takes place in November and National Entrepreneurs' Day is observed every third Tuesday of November, occurring this year on November 15. Both offer a time to celebrate the efforts of entrepreneurs in communities across the U.S. that better the economy locally and nationally.
Entrepreneurs deserve recognition and support for several reasons. They produce new and improved goods, services, and ideas, while their businesses help with job creation. As more new companies are launched, more employment opportunities become available to the public.
