How do we get results from what most consider a broken government? What skills are needed to unpackage the government monolith into specific stacks for specific tasks and duties?
This presentation will use Startup Visa as a case study for how the startup community has achieved limited initial success in creating an issue, run into typical political roadblocks, and how to use expert knowledge of political structures to pass Startup Visa this year as part of comprehensive reform.
What are the big red buttons that are causally linked to getting results from government? How can a group that knows enough about DC and its culture earn the trust of the startup community to deliver the knowledge and tools entrepreneurs need to effectively make DC work to remove barriers to entrepreneurial success?
Entrepreneurial veteran and Representative Jared Polis, Netroots Nation founder Gina Cooper, and PolitiHacks founder Craig Montuori will discuss making government work for startups.
