Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the American Economy with Rep. Ron Kind

The American economy has long been touted as the most innovative in the world, and American innovations have contributed broadly to domestic and global prosperity. The Great Recession and an increasingly competitive global economy make it imperative that the United States does more than ever to foster innovation and the creation and growth of new companies. Investing in innovation and the success of the American people must be a cornerstone of our strategy to create prosperity in the 21st century, idea-based economy.

In its recently released Innovation and Entrepreneurship Agenda, the New Democrat Coalition discusses innovation's central role in creating American prosperity. The agenda lays out a set of principles, mated with specific policies, for fostering innovation. 

On Wednesday, June 16, NDN hosted a speech by Congressman Ron Kind (WI-3), Vice-Chair of the New Democrat Coalition and Co-Chair of the NDC Task Force on Innovation and Competitiveness. Kind spoke about the value of innovation to the American economy and the recently released New Dem Agenda for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Kind was joined by NDN President Simon Rosenberg.
