Startup America: Reducing Barriers

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Saturday 12th March, 2011

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

Entrepreneurs are a powerful economic force. They create jobs, grow businesses, and develop the innovations on which America thrives. In order to enable entrepreneurs to thrive, the Administration is committed to reducing barriers to entrepreneurial success. On January 31, 2011 President Obama announced the launch of the Startup America initiative to celebrate, inspire, and accelerate high-growth entrepreneurship throughout the nation.

As part of the Administration’s commitment to hear and learn from the public, this Startup America: Reducing Barriers panel asks you to join senior Administration officials and high-growth entrepreneurs to discuss the regulatory reforms, reductions and improvements that could be enacted to help high-growth entrepreneurs grow in our country.
