The entrepreneurial spirit drives the economy forward, but bringing a new product or service to market can be a daunting prospect for innovators—from gaining access to capital to navigating the legal and regulatory landscape. State policies can hinder or foster that entrepreneurial spirit. This CSG Fiscal and Economic Policy Academy, in partnership with the Kauffman Foundation, will feature experts, practitioners and national thought leaders to explore state-based solutions for increased entrepreneurship. Attendees will hear about innovative policy strategies to overcome hindrances to homegrown entrepreneurs as speakers share best practices across the country.
