The Kauffman Symposiums on Entrepreneurship and Innovation Data are a multi-year series of workshops focused on the important and growing body of data collected on entrepreneurship and innovation.
The 2008 Symposium's primary objectives are:
- To encourage discussion on incremental steps to improve data collection efforts, both governmental and private
- To provide a broad perspective on the importance of governmental and private data in serving research needs and driving better policy
- To highlight that while more entrepreneurship and innovation data are becoming available for research, improvements are still needed
- To amplify the voices of those proposing specific changes through intensive support, critique, and shared infrastructure
