The Kauffman Foundation Start Up “Act”

Check out these two video’s from the Kauffman Foundation. The first is about what entrepreneurs do for the economy. The second highlights their proposal for new legislation to advocate for entrepreneurship and why its so important.  To read more about the  Kauffman Foundation’s StartUp Act click here.   My only disappointment in Kauffman’s proposed legislation is that it does not include the arts.  If you want to “rev up America” Kauffman, you need the arts. STEM “want-to-be” entrepreneurs need STEAM. The “A” will make the difference in attitude, language and reinvigorate passion in America. So why not strategically incorporate and utilize our strengths?  Dear Kauffman Foundation, you can start by acknowledging the arts for the value we hold.
