Gov. Terry Branstad is recognizing entrepreneurs in Iowa.

Bransad on Monday said the state will take part in Global Entrepreneurship Week, an international celebration of business innovation. He said there will be events around the state for people who are creating new businesses.

Branstad says small businesses are the "backbone of the state's economy."

The Quad Cities, Burlington and West Des Moines are among the locations holding events and contests during the week.

Global Entrepreneurship Week was first held in 2008 and is now recognized by more than 130 countries around the world.
