 Governor McDonnell declared 2012 “The Year of the Entrepreneur” in Virginia, saying “Virginia is an incubator for good ideas and we have the right tax, regulatory and business climate for entrepreneurs to turn those ideas into job-creating businesses. We have one of the best K-12 education systems in the country where we not only tell our young people to dream big, but more importantly provide tools for learners of all ages to follow through on their dreams. We have some of the top research institutions in the country over a wide spectrum of fields, with the infrastructure to develop ideas and begin to put them into practice. Perhaps most importantly, we have a community of entrepreneurial individuals who in spite of the very real risk of failure put their energy and sweat and savings into creating opportunities for themselves and others. I am declaring 2012 “The Year of the Entrepreneur” in Virginia to recognize these individuals, to study why they’re successful in Virginia and to inspire others in Virginia and around the world to turn big ideas into reality here in the Commonwealth.
