Policymakers and Startups Can Build Ecosystems
To bolster our startup communities, strong collaboration is required for success. Policymakers at the local, state, and federal level can be a powerful partner for advancing startup ecosystems. One of the major problems is that a gap exists between the two. Policymakers aren't always aware of the startups in their area, and the economic impacts startups can bring. Likewise, startups don't always think to engage policymakers to bring awareness to their endeavors. The goal of this panel is to discuss how the two can work together to bridge the divide, and build thriving communities together.
