Startups@DC: Max Political Impact, Minimum Effort

How do we get results from what most consider to be a broken government? What skills are needed to unpackage the government monolith into specific stacks for specific tasks and duties?

This presentation will use Startup Visa as a case study for how the startup community has achieved limited initial success in creating an issue, failed to follow-up, and how to use expert knowledge of the political power structure to be more successful as we start from scratch to pass Startup Visa this year.

What are the big red buttons that are causally linked to getting results from government? How can a group that knows enough about DC and its culture earn the trust of the startup community to deliver the knowledge and tools entrepreneurs need to effectively make DC work to remove barriers to entrepreneurial success?

Entrepreneurial veteran and Representative Jared Polis and Startup Visa advocate and PolitiHacks founder Craig Montuori will discuss making government work for startups.
