Better Capitalism: Growth Of New Ventures Stressed In Kauffman Foundation Video

BetterCapitalism

Emphasizing the growth phase over the ideation phase.

By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)

Taking emphasis away from the creation of new enterprises, Robert Litan’s book Better Capitalism focuses on the growth of new firms.

A sketchbook video by Kauffman Foundation stresses the importance of market conditions facilitating entrepreneurship, such as limiting taxation of the business in the growth stage, IP protection, investors with faith in entrepreneurs, a solid education system…

The video would like to see our economy improve with reform in four areas of public policy: high-skilled immigration, improving access to high-growth capital by firms, increasing pace of commercialization of innovations at universities and regulatory reform.

The Kauffman Foundation sketchbook video closes a hopeful note – “Where other people see problems, entrepreneurs see opportunities.”
