Heartland Forward Releases Entrepreneurial Policy Recommendations


As part of a grant with the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation we have worked with entrepreneurs in the heartland to better understand the policy barriers they faced when starting and scaling their businesses. As part of these efforts, we hosted short conversations with small groups of entrepreneurs, midsize city mayors, gubernatorial offices and local elected officials working on small business and entrepreneurial issues.

Below you will find a series of white paper videos focusing on reducing barriers to capital, accessing education, fostering a regulatory policy environment encouraging entrepreneurship and gaining the heartland entrepreneurial perspective.
