Calling it "a cause for our economy," Kauffman Foundation President and CEO Carl Schramm posted an opinion piece on the Huffington Post weblog about the newly launched Entrepreneurs' Movement. Schramm's essay calls on entrepreneurs and supporters to join the campaign designed to give them a unified voice to influence economic decision-making. In the article, he said:
"While Americans understand that entrepreneurs are critical to economic growth, our national dialogue doesn't include comprehensive discussion of policies that promote private sector, job-creating reform. This disconnect likely exists because there is currently no organized community advocating for policies favorable to entrepreneurship -- and the Entrepreneurs' Movement is intended to fill that void by giving entrepreneurs the voice they need.
"In that spirit, "Build a Stronger America" will help business owners of all sizes form a collective force so that policymakers from coast-to-coast will consider their needs -- and the needs of all entrepreneurs -- as they evaluate new laws and regulations. We're also offering entrepreneurs a chance to share their stories, connect with like-minded innovators, and discover more efficient ways of doing business."
