Kauffman Foundation releases “Start Us Up . . . America’s New Business Plan”

Titled “Start Us Up . . . America’s New Business Plan,” the concept has four pillars:

  • Opportunity – “a level playing field and less red tape”;
  • Funding – “equal access to the right kind of capital everywhere”;
  • Knowledge – “the know-how to start a business”; and
  • Support – “the ability for all to take risks.”

They are described in greater deal in the full report at this link. One Tennessee organization – Epicenter (Memphis) – is listed as a coalition member. Click here to see the complete list.
