National Entrepreneurs Day is celebrated in the United States every third Tuesday in November. This holiday is dedicated to all businessmen and women, who have been instrumental in creating the world we live in today. They have provided us with many of the products and services we use in our everyday lives.
National Entrepreneurs Day was created by the co-founders of Grasshopper in 2010. The intention of the holiday is to recognize the hard work that entrepreneurs have undertaken, and to tell their stories of success, even in difficult situations. Though the holiday has yet to become official, President Barack Obama approved it in 2012, and various events, meetings, lectures and ceremonies are held to observe it.
