"Restoring U.S. Competitiveness: Creating Jobs and Unleashing the Potential of Small Businesses Through Technology and Innovation"

Startups and Small Businesses are the backbone of the American economy. They are responsible for the vast majority of all new job creation in the United States; they are America's greatest source of innovation; and they are vital to our economic competitiveness.

The Center for Public Policy Innovation (CPPI) is pleased to invite you to the second event in our multi-part forum, Restoring U.S. Competitiveness: Creating Jobs and Unleashing the Potential of Small Businesses Through Technology and Innovation. This program will explore policies to facilitate small business growth through international trade; discuss how new technologies, such as cloud computing and mobile technology platforms, can extend the reach of American companies; and examine regulatory issues that impact job creation and innovation here in the United States.
