Gov. Mark Gordon has declared Feb. 12-18 as National Entrepreneurship Week in Wyoming.
The proclamation signing ceremony was held Feb. 6 at the Wyoming Capitol, organized by Minden Fox, an entrepreneurship instructor at Laramie County Community College, in partnership with the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming Business Council.
Representatives of UW’s Wyoming Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (WyCEI) and IMPACT 307 were in attendance to discuss the success of the Wyoming Innovation Partnership (WIP) initiative. Penelope Shihab, director of WyCEI, spoke about the impact of WIP on Wyoming and the importance of strengthening collaboration and communication between community colleges and UW.
The governor expressed his support for WIP, shared an entrepreneurial success story from Casper and encouraged the audience to stay tuned for upcoming success stories from Wyoming’s entrepreneurs.
“I am proud to declare Feb. 12-18, 2023, as National Entrepreneurship Week in Wyoming,” Gordon said. “We have so many inspiring stories to share about our state’s entrepreneurs, and I am excited to see what the future holds for Wyoming’s business community.”
National Entrepreneurship Week was designated by Congress in 2006 as a reminder of the contributions of entrepreneurs to the U.S. and the importance of entrepreneurship education for students.
