On Friday, Jan. 16, U.S. Senators Mark Warner (D-VA) and Tim Kaine (D-VA) along with a bipartisan group of six Senate colleagues introduced the Startup Act, a renewed bipartisan jobs and high-skilled immigration bill to bolster entrepreneurship and innovation nationwide.
In support of the legislation, NVTC President and CEO Bobbie Kilberg made the following statement on behalf of NVTC and its membership:
"NVTC appreciates Senators Warner and Kaine's continued commitment to fostering startups, innovation, and entrepreneurship. The Startup Act addresses key obstacles that many entrepreneurs today face, including recruiting and retaining talent, accessing capital, commercializing technology, and generating new intellectual property. These reforms will greatly benefit Northern Virginia’s growing hub of leading technology companies and help innovative young businesses across America grow and prosper.”
