Mark Marich on June 18, 2012 Source: Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship

The House of Representatives returns from a week-long recess with a full slate of hearings and activities of interest to entrepreneurs and those who support them. Highlights include Startup Day which puts 18 startups on Capitol Hill meeting with members of Congress and a hearing on efforts to boost technology transfer through a look at “creative approaches to the Bayh-Dole Act.” Other hearings cover topics such as the nation’s science policies, commercializing space, the looming fiscal crisis and small business lending.
