Senators Scott, Klobuchar Celebrate Senate Passage of National Entrepreneurship Week Resolution

WASHINGTON — As National Entrepreneurship Week comes to an end, U.S. Senators Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), co-chairs of the bipartisan Senate Entrepreneurship Caucus, celebrate the Senate passage of their resolution recognizing American entrepreneurs.

The resolution commemorates National Entrepreneurship Week – a congressionally-chartered initiative that has taken place annually during the third week in February since 2006.

“The entrepreneurial spirit is the foundation of the American Dream,” said Senator Scott. “As a former small business owner, I understand the hard work and dedication the American people put in every day to make their dreams a reality. During National Entrepreneurship Week, I’m proud to recognize our entrepreneurs for their unrelenting commitment to creating incredible economic opportunity in our country!”

The Senate Entrepreneurship Caucus 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.).
