While the President addresses the Nation this evening, there will be several guests joining the First Lady in the Capitol gallery. These Americans exemplify what the United States needs to emphasize as we continue to create jobs of the future and ensure our competitiveness in the 21st century economy.
Startup companies and small businesses create the majority of new jobs in America, and the President wants to underscore the important role entrepreneurs and small business owners play in growing the Nation’s economy. In advance of the President’s speech, OSTP would like to highlight three of the First Lady’s guests tonight:
The White House Small Business Agenda highlights many of the efforts this Administration has taken or will take to help accomplish the goals these entrepreneurs represent, including the Startup America initiative, investments to improve broadband access, and many others. Please join us in recognizing the remarkable small business owners and entrepreneurs being represented at tonight’s speech as the President outlines his plan to put Americans back to work.
