Urge your local representatives and senators to support entrepreneurs

Too many are left out of our economy. The long-term decline in entrepreneurship has dragged down productivity, wages and living standards for all Americans. Put simply—fewer startups mean a lower quality of life. We need to eliminate barriers for anyone who has an idea to start and grow a business, and we need to redefine the meaning of “entrepreneur.” This is how we work toward a new, inclusive, and empowering economy.

Featuring speeches by:

  • Wendy Guillies, president and CEO of the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation
  • Victor W. Hwang, vice president of Entrepreneurship at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation
  • Janice Omadeke, founder and CEO of The Mentor Method

The Kauffman Foundation also conducted a national survey of more than 2,000 entrepreneurs. Download the slides [PDF] >
