About this event

New business creation spiked to record highs in 2020 and 2021 as millions of Americans left jobs and sought new opportunities even amidst a pandemic. Today, small and young companies are ready to grow and lead the next economic expansion, yet many challenges that confronted small business owners and entrepreneurs prior to the pandemic still persist.

What actions do stakeholders and policymakers need to consider to ensure that access to capital is sufficient and how will technical assistance for these businesses help lead the next generation of growth and job creation? Join the Bipartisan Policy Center and Gusto as we explore these issues and dig into what new survey data tell us about the state of small businesses and entrepreneurs.
