This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Entrepreneurial pulse

After a slow week for followers of the entrepreneurial economy on Capitol Hill, the week ahead looks to be full of relevant committee hearings. Craig Venter, the biologist and entrepreneur who was one of the first people to sequence the human genome, testifies on policies to spur innovative medical breakthroughs. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen is scheduled to appear on both sides of the Hill to talk about monetary policy and the state of the economy. Congressional Budget Office Director Doug Elmendorf provides the long-term budget outlook to the House Budget Committee. Other topics covered by hearings include: occupational licensing and its barriers to entrepreneurship, combatting cybercrime, the future video marketplace, capitalizing on federal R&D, 21st century manufacturing and more.
