Scott, Klobuchar Bipartisan Resolution Recognizing National Entrepreneurship Week Passes Senate

WASHINGTON – This week, the Senate passed U.S. Senators Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Amy Klobuchar’s (D-Minn.) bipartisan resolution commemorating National Entrepreneurship Week.

National Entrepreneurship Week, a non-partisan, congressionally-chartered initiative, has taken place annually during the third week in February since 2006.

This year, National Entrepreneurship Week is February 11-18.

“As a former small business owner, I know that hard work, innovation, and diverse ideas create opportunities for communities to flourish,” said Senator Scott. “Small businesses are the engine of job creation, and pro-growth policies that promote entrepreneurial success are vital to our nation’s future.”

“Entrepreneurs move our country forward, transforming today’s new ideas and side-projects into tomorrow’s booming businesses. Our bipartisan resolution celebrates the innovation, creativity, and courageous spirit of the entrepreneurs who are leading our economy into the future,” said Klobuchar. “As co-chair of the bipartisan Senate Entrepreneurship Caucus, I’ll continue working to ensure that America remains the best place in the world to start a business.” 

Scott and Klobuchar are co-chairs of the bipartisan Senate Entrepreneurship Caucus, which was founded in 2019 to address the most pressing issues facing entrepreneurs and serve as a forum for collaboration and coordination. Members include Senators Chris Coons (D-Del.), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.), John Hoeven (R-N.D.), Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), Gary Peters (D-Mich.), Kyrsten Sinema (I-Ariz.), Tina Smith (D- Minn.), and Bob Casey (D-Pa.).
