Each day, Innovation Daily checks the pulse of global innovation-- courtesy of Innovation America. Here, we take a look at a handful of relevant stories it compiled last week:
Confidence is on the rise among small business owners. A new survey from Citibank shows a sizable jump in the number of those who said their own business is better than it was a year ago—from 24 percent in August 2010 to 43 percent in June 2011. The sentiment seems consistent with others targeted toward entrepreneurs—including the Startup Confidence Index from the Kauffman Foundation.
The House of Representatives is in a week-long recess and will return to action next Monday. In the meantime, a handful of Senate committees have hearings scheduled that may be of interest to entrepreneurs and those who support them—including a look at competitiveness and collaboration between the U.S. and China on clean energy.
A few weeks ago, we told you about the Senate version of Startup Act 2.0—sponsored by a bipartisan group of four U.S. Senators. Not to be outdone, the House introduced identical legislation last week thanks to Congressman Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.) and Loretta Sanchez (D-Calif.) along with a group of cosponsors—Kevin Yoder (R-Kan.), Jared Polis (D-Colo.), Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), Russ Carnahan (D-Mo.) and Robert Dold (R-Ill.).
If the U.S. is going to put higher education back on the path to innovation and entrepreneurship, it's going to have to address a number of looming challenges--not just the skyrocketing cost of a college degree. College 2.0: An Entrepreneurial Approach to Reforming Higher Education outlines those challenges and showcases ambitious ideas for reinventing higher education, focused on making better use of technology, developing a culture of measurement and performance incentives, and creating smarter regulation.
