Dear Entrepreneurs and Supporters of Entrepreneurship:
It's been a year since we launched “Build A Stronger America, The Entrepreneur's Movement,” and we want to thank you for your dedication and involvement. As the next phase in this effort, we are transitioning the Movement to its new home within the Kauffman Foundation's website for entrepreneurs, Entrepreneurship.org. The transition will officially occur in the beginning of October 2010. As our core champions, we wanted to make sure you were the first to know.
Your signing of The Entrepreneur's Pledge and support of The Entrepreneur's Movement have been — and will continue to be — absolutely crucial in growing and maintaining a movement of entrepreneurs throughout America and across the world. In the past year, we have quickly spread The Pledge to more than 12,500 supporters. Your participation, outreach and encouragement have helped us get there!
On Entrepreneurship.org, entrepreneurs and supporters like you still will have the opportunity to sign the Pledge and join the Entrepreneurs’ Movement. In addition, Movement members will have access to an extensive online resource center that has thousands of articles, videos, podcasts, blog postings and event listings from around the world. Members of the Movement will also be able to submit events or resources for publication on the site thereby sharing their interests with the global community of like-minded entrepreneurs.
We sincerely appreciate your commitment to economic growth through your new business and entrepreneurial endeavors. In the uniting spirit of entrepreneurship, we hope you will share Entrepreneurship.org with your network and continue to encourage others to sign The Pledge through the Entrepreneurship.org community.
