The American entrepreneur is at the forefront of job and capital creation. How can policy makers encourage entrepreneurs and support 21st century startups?

This panel of America's leading voices on job creation, smart government, and economic vitality will explore the federal role in promoting public private partnerships to sustain and enhance U.S. products and leadership and the importance of engaging beyond the Beltway, ensuring city and state policy makers and innovation ecosystems have the tools they need and an open road to succeed.
