Entrepreneurship at the Endless Frontier: Catalyzing Competitiveness Through Innovation and Invention

April 22, 2:00 pm – 3:15 pm ET

Join the Day One Project and Bipartisan Policy Center for a conversation exploring how public policy can support innovation, invention, and entrepreneurship in underrepresented communities and underserved regions, how public-private partnerships are crucial to this ecosystem, and other ways competitiveness can be enhanced to drive economic impact.

Momentum is growing in Congress to increase R&D spending and make greater investments in science and technology. The Day One Project and Bipartisan Policy Center are motivated by the thinking that the success of these efforts will depend on which innovators, inventors, and entrepreneurs can commercialize their research and eager to explore how public policy can increase the opportunity for impact.
