Welcome to NatlEshipWeek 2023!
Celebrating America's Entrepreneurship Ecosystem
Super Bowl LVII🏈 wasn't the only thing kicking off this weekend! Saturday, February 11th marked the start of NatlEshipWeek. NatlEshipWeek is a congressionally chartered week dedicated to empowering entrepreneurship across the United States. The annual initiative was relaunched in 2017 as NatlEshipWeek to bring together a network of partners from Maui to Miami to educate, engage, and build equitable access to America's Entrepreneurship Ecosystem.
