The Start-Up Act 2.0 and American Innovation
Senator Chris Coons is part of a bipartisan group of Senators that recently introduced the Startup Act 2.0 in the Senate. He will provide a keynote address on the Act followed by a panel discussion that will focus on key aspects of the Start-Up Act 2.0. There will be a special focus on the provisions designed to accelerate the commercialization of university research, the broadening of opportunities for temporary immigrants with post-graduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) for visas for permanant residency, and the proposal to assess the impact of regulations.
