The President made clear in his State of the Union address that we as a country must commit to winning the future: out-innovating, out-building, and out-educating the rest of the world. After his address, the President asked senior Administration officials to get on the road and host discussions with business leaders across the country. In March, he also launched the “100 Youth Roundtables” Initiative, designed to dialogue directly with young people and move the needle substantively on policy and outreach. As part of the President & SBA’s commitment to young people and youth in underserved communities, the agency has committed a portion of the National Small Business Week agenda to devoting time and resources to educating and engaging young entrepreneurs.
We are proud to announce that the White House Office of Public Engagement, White House Business Council, Small Business Administration and SBA partners General Assembly Incubator and the NYC Fund for Public Advocacy are hosting the Young Entrepreneur Summit on Tuesday May 17 at 6:30 p.m. EDT
The purpose of this specific event is to listen to young entrepreneurs and get their feedback on how the Administration can best support their growth. This event will also help young entrepreneurs take advantage of the Administration’s resources and programs designed to help them succeed.
Please join us and feel free to spread the word.
Kalpen Modi is Associate Director in the Office of Public Engagement.
