This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Entrepreneurial pulse

While things on the Senate side of Capitol Hill look fairly quiet for the coming days, members of the House return from a constituent work week and have several hearings of interest scheduled. The Energy and Commerce Committee reviews new legislation to take on patent trolls while the Small Business Committee examines programmatic changes to the SBIR and STTR programs. Other hearings cover moving nanotechnology from the lab to the marketplace and barriers facing small business exporters.
