America's New Business Plan | The Kauffman Foundation

October 15, 2019 - If we’re going to create new jobs, we must support entrepreneurs. Yet, policymakers continue to prioritize big, established businesses over new businesses. The result: Entrepreneurship has remained effectively flat for 20 years, in part because women, people of color, and rural residents lack equal access to the tools needed to start new businesses. The Kauffman Foundation has launched the Start Us Up Now, a coalition to back the new policy agenda, America's New Business Plan, to support America's entrepreneurs.
