In 2010, Siamak Taghaddos, David Hauser and Amir Teherani came up with the idea of a holiday that would celebrated entrepreneurship and innovation. Two years later, U.S. President Barak Obama declared November 12 as National Entrepreneurship Month. November 6, 2012 was declared as National Entrepreneurs’ Day. However, it was a one-time celebration.

Supporters of National Entrepreneurs’ Day started a campaign for making this holiday official through legislation. If the corresponding resolution is approved by both the Senate and House, the holiday will be officially celebrated every year on the third Tuesday in November.
