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

This event has passed.

The reintroduction of the Endless Frontier Act by Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Todd Young (R-IN) comes amidst renewed debate in Washington about U.S. competitiveness. Watch as the Bipartisan Policy Center and Day One Project bring together experts to talk about how public policy can enhance competitiveness—and what else needs to happen for bipartisan action.

Republicans and Democrats agree that American competitiveness must be strengthened. Momentum is gathering on Capitol Hill for increased R&D spending and greater federal investments into science and technology. To a large degree, the success of such efforts will depend on the extent to which a diverse array of innovators, inventors, and entrepreneurs are able to commercialize research—and how much public policy supports them.

Join the Bipartisan Policy Center and Day One Project as we look at the role of entrepreneurs in competitiveness, how public policy can support more innovation, invention, and entrepreneurship in underrepresented communities and underserved regions, how public-private partnerships are crucial to this ecosystem, and other ways competitiveness might be enhanced.
