U.S. President Barack Obama recently announced that nine people have been named Presidential Ambassadors for Global Entrepreneurship, with a specific focus on helping empower women and young entrepreneurs around the world.
The Ambassadors for Global Entrepreneurship
What they have in common is a passion for supporting and nurturing entrepreneurs.
We share that passion, as well.
Entrepreneurs with Passion
Amway was founded by Rich DeVos and Jay Van Andel, two friends who wanted to go into business for themselves and thought others would want to do the same. Today the Amway business opportunity is offered in more than 100 countries and territories and millions of people have their own Amway businesses.
Helping Entrepreneurs Build Businesses
You might say our co-founders were among the original ambassadors of entrepreneurship, helping people launch businesses of their own all around the world.
Today their sons Steve Van Andel and Doug DeVos travel the world encouraging entrepreneurship and inspiring business owners.
Supporters of Entrepreneurs and the Entrepreneurial Spirit
Like the new Ambassadors, we believe that empowering women and young people to become entrepreneurs will create a change for the better, resulting in stronger communities, vibrant countries and robust economies.
Congratulations to the new Ambassadors for Global Entrepreneurship!
