Washington, DC – On Wednesday, March 7th, the White House will honor Ted Lasser as one of eleven leaders from across the Nation being recognized as Champions of Change for outstanding leadership in entrepreneurial mentoring, counseling and training. These exceptional leaders support small business owners by helping them accelerate their path to growth.
The Champions of Change program was created as a part of President Obama’s Winning the Future initiative. Each week, a different sector is highlighted and groups of Champions, ranging from educators to entrepreneurs to community leaders, are recognized for the work they are doing to serve and strengthen their communities.
Small business owners and entrepreneurs enrich our communities, drive innovation, and create jobs. Many entrepreneurs would not be where they are today without the help of a mentor to provide them with expert advice. Through business mentoring, these Champions of Change are helping to rebuild the economy and revitalize their communities.
