JOBS Act signed by President, views of its impact vary
Much has been written about the new “Jumpstart Our Business Start-ups Act” that President Obama signed into law on Thursday. The law goes by the acronym of JOBS. Some praise it as a critical stimulus for entrepreneurs. Others decry it. We have posted below links to several articles that have been written since the bill was signed by the President.
Later today, we will launch a discussion on the teknovation LinkedIn web page, and we encourage you to share your thoughts about the JOBS Act in general and specifically how you think it will impact your organization, whether positively or negatively.
