About Jonathan Ortmans
Leading the development of Global Entrepreneurship Week on behalf of the
Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, Jonathan Ortmans has worked to align
more than 75 countries to inspire, connect, mentor and engage the next
generation of entrepreneurs. In 2007, he successfully piloted a similar effort
focused exclusively on the United States that engaged more than 1,300
partner organizations and roughly 500,000 people. Ortmans advises the
Kauffman Foundation principally on its global footprint and its interface with
policymakers through the Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship (hosted on
entrepreneurship.org), a public policy initiative to focus attention on the
importance of entrepreneurship to the economy and society. Based in
Washington, DC, Ortmans serves as an interface between new research and
initiatives to advance entrepreneurship at the Foundation and the questions
and concerns that arise from policymakers in the nation’s capital.
He started his first business at the age of 19 in his native United Kingdom
and his second at 34 after a career in Washington, DC, working for the U.S.
House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee focusing on trade
policy. Previously, Ortmans served as executive director of the Columbia
Institute for Political Research, concentrating on health care economic
policy. Currently, he also serves as President of the Public Forum Institute,
an independent, nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization that enjoys strong
bi-partisan congressional support in fostering public discourse on major
issues of the day.
