Join our team at WKREDA in celebrating local entrepreneurs throughout Western Kansas and their many accomplishments this November for National Entrepreneurship Month! Entrepreneurs throughout Western Kansas are busy creating the newest products and innovations and strengthening our economy.

The United States was ranked as the world’s most entrepreneurial country in 2021. This year, StartupBlink’s Global Startup Ecosystem Index 2022 ranked the U.S. as the number one country with the most business startups and a strong startup ecosystem. 

These startups often develop into small businesses. Small businesses made up 99.9 percent of U.S. businesses in 2021, so it’s important to give those nearby mom-and-pop shops the recognition that they deserve. That’s 32.5 million small businesses in the U.S. alone.

What is National Entrepreneurship Month?

Be sure to celebrate National Entrepreneurs’ Day on November 15th this year. Each year National Entrepreneurs’ Day is on the third Tuesday in the month of November. The celebration extends all month as National Entrepreneurship Month is the whole of November. This is the perfect time to recognize the hard work of entrepreneurs in every community across the U.S. that continue to grow their local and national economies. 

Entrepreneurship brings together like-minded business people, those with a goal of providing top-tier goods or services to meet customer requirements in a new and improved way. These startups also help to bring new employment opportunities to the surrounding area. Whenever a company is launched in Western Kansas, more jobs become available to our community members. These new businesses and innovators have earned the spotlight this month and deserve community support.
