A Progressive Agenda for Fostering Entrepreneurship

on June 27, 2011 Source: Policy Dialogue on Entrepreneurship

Last Monday, I pointed out the latest issue of Democracy: A Journal of Ideas that featured ways government can promote firm formation and growth.

This week, the authors take center stage at the National Press Club for a panel discussion on "From the Ground Up: A Progressive Agenda for Fostering Entrepreneurship." The symposium covers a broad range of priorities. From promoting minority business ownership and enacting smart immigration reform to teaching entrepreneurship in our schools and encouraging innovation clusters, progressives can unite behind an agenda that promotes entrepreneurs.

The Kauffman Foundation's Brink Lindsey and Andrei Cherny, president of Democracy: A Journal of Ideas, will provide opening remarks.

EJ Dionne, the editorial chair for Democracy and long-time columnist for the Washington Post, will moderate the panel, including:

  • William Galston
    Ezra K. Zilkha Chair of the Governance Studies Program at the Brookings Institution and a College Park Professor at the University of Maryland
  • Amy Rosen
    President and CEO of Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship
  • Maryann Feldman
    S.K. Heninger Distinguished Professor of Public Policy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
  • Thomas "Danny" Boston
    Professor of Economics in the School of Economics at Georgia Tech and CEO of EuQuant, an economic consulting and research company
