This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Mark Marich

The pace continues to quicken on Capitol Hill this week with a number of hearings relevant to entrepreneurial development and startups in general. USAID is in the discussion on the future of Egypt and Syria and how it can support broader development (and entrepreneurs) there. Other topics covered by hearings include: a review of the JOBS Act at a year and a half, improving the US patent system, broadband adoption in the US, cyber-security, basic energy research and PPACA implementation challenges.
