WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama has laid out a vision to win the future by out-innovating, out-educating and out-building the rest of the world – a plan critical for America’s cities.  As entrepreneurship plays a central role in creating jobs and economic opportunity, the Administration is committed to creating public-private partnerships to support current entrepreneurs and spark a new generation of urban entrepreneurs. 

To focus on these initiatives to boost job growth in America’s cities, the White House Business Council, Office of Public Engagement and Domestic Policy Council are partnering with the Rutgers Business School’s Center for Urban Entrepreneurship & Economic Development (CUEED), Startup America Partnership, Mayor Cory Booker of Newark,  Russell Simmons, the Fund for Public Advocacy – Office of the New York City Public Advocate, Operation HOPE, the Small Business Administration (SBA), the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), for a day-long summit on ways to strengthen urban entrepreneurship.
