SSTI launching nationwide policy project with underwriting from the Kauffman Foundation

SSTI announced that it is launching a new initiative to improve innovation policy across the country with support from the Kauffman Foundation.

According to the announcement, SSTI will work with its members and other entrepreneurial support organizations to cultivate new policy champions from the ground up. The activities will include working with 35 or more organizations over the next 18 months to encourage and facilitate meetings around the country where state and/or federal lawmakers meet with the organizations that support tech- and innovation-driven entrepreneurship.

“These meetings will help drive home the importance of science, tech, innovation and entrepreneurship to their regional economies, and this understanding will lead to an interest in supportive policies,” SSTI explained in the release.
