This week, the State Department is celebrating Global Entrepreneurship Week -- a time to highlight successful entrepreneurs who serve their communities and to inspire the next generation to engage in entrepreneurial activity while connecting them to potential collaborators, mentors, and even investors. Our embassies, consulates, and partners around the world have organized events to promote entrepreneurship and to inspire individuals from all backgrounds to follow in the footsteps of generations of successful American entrepreneurs.
