Infographic examines Startup Act 2.0
An infographic first published last week explores the basic tenets of the Startup Act 2.0.
Following on the heels of our coverage last week of Startup Act 2.0, we happened upon an infographic that provides a visual representation of the proposed legislation and some of the statistics supporters are using in the case for adopting the Act.
Unveiled last Tuesday, Startup Act 2.0 is a piece of bipartisan legislation designed to jumpstart the economy through the creation and growth of new businesses. Four U.S. Senators, including Jerry Moran of Kansas, introduced the Act, which builds on the original Startup Act introduced to the senate by Moran and Mark Warner (D-Va.) in December.
As illustrated by the infographic (and elucidated on Moran's website), the primary areas of focus for Startup Act 2.0 are:
- Talent - Attract and retain entrepreneurial talent to create jobs in America
- Growth - Encourage growth policies and ensure thorough analysis of new regulations
- Capital - Encourage investment in startups and reward patient capital
- Innovation - Accelerate the commercialization of university research
