Startup America Entrepreneur Program

by John on February 2, 2011

During last week’s State of the Union address, President Obama challenged the US Nation to out-educate, out-innovate, and out-build our competition to win the future.

A very large part of this would start with American entrepreneurs getting evolved in Startup America. Startup America is a national campaign to help entrepreneurship across the US.  He also focused around the formation of the Startup America Partnership to catalyze private support for entrepreneurial ecosystems.

The co-founder of AOL Steve Case will be a huge part of this growing in the US.  To jump-start this campaign, the Obama Administration announced 27 public and private commitments organized across five key goals:

1. Expand access to capital for high-growth startups.

2. Expand entrepreneurship education and mentorship programs.

3. Strengthen federally-funded R&D commercialization.

4. Identify and remove unnecessary barriers to high-growth startups.

5. Expand collaborations between large companies and startups.

This is just the beginning of what President Obama has challenged us to do.  This doesn’t mean that this post is just for people in the US, this is also a call for everyone across the world to start something that they feel will change the world.  Entrepreneurs are the backbone of our world that drive innovation and help this world be a better place.

    ET Obama called for a five-year freeze on non-security spending including asking lawmakers to back a five-year plan put forth by Defence Secretary Robert Gates to save 78 billion US in defence spending.. I am proposing that starting this year we freeze annual domestic spending for the next five years he said in the prepared speech. This would reduce the deficit by more than 400 billion over the next decade and will bring discretionary spending to the lowest share of our economy since Dwight Eisenhower was president. .A written version of the speech was released an hour before he began to speak..The speech Obamas first to a divided Congress came as Republicans increased pressure to cut government spending and lower taxes in the wake of unprecedented stimulus spending that began in the last days of the Bush administration Obamas wife Michelle waves Tuesday before the start of her husbands speech to the nation. Charles Dharapak Associated Press With an audience expected to number as many as 50 million people the president also challenged the country to rise to its economic troubles in the same way Americans went to the moon after being beaten into space by the Soviet Union.. After investing in better research and education we didn t just surpass the Soviets we unleashed a wave of innovation that created new industries and millions of new jobs Obama said.. This is our generation s Sputnik moment. .He also admitted that a newly Republican-controlled House of Representatives means governing will now be a shared responsibility between Democrats and Republicans..After the last election the Republican Party holds 242 of the 435 House seats while the Democrat caucus still controls the 100-seat Senate with 53 members.
