Neguse, Taylor Launch Bipartisan Congressional Caucus on Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Washington D.C.— Congressman Joe Neguse (D-CO) and Congressman Van Taylor (R-TX) are launching a bipartisan Congressional Caucus on Innovation and Entrepreneurship to promote federal policies that create jobs and to encourage the growth of early-state innovative companies. The Caucus will educate Members and staff on how the federal government can stimulate robust economic growth by fostering conditions that support entrepreneurs and their efforts to obtain the resources needed to start and grow their companies.

“From tech companies in Boulder and Fort Collins to the famous ski resorts in Vail and Breckenridge, Colorado’s 2nd District is known around the nation for our innovation and entrepreneurship,” said Congressman Joe Neguse. “When we invest in creativity and innovation, we are investing in economic opportunity and growth for future generations. I’m excited to launch the bipartisan Congressional Caucus on Innovation and Entrepreneurship with Congressman Taylor to ensure that our federal policies continue to encourage innovators around our country and the frontier spirit of entrepreneurship that exists across our district and state.”  

“Texas’ Third Congressional District is home to some of the most innovative companies in the world. These are companies that not only create new products, improve efficiency, and address some of society’s most pressing obstacles, but these are companies that create thousands of jobs right here in Collin County,” said Congressman Van Taylor. “I’m excited to work with Congressman Neguse and members from both parties in creating the Congressional Caucus on Innovation and Entrepreneurship to ensure our job creators have the tools and resources needed for success.”

The Caucus will host regular briefings to continue the dialogue about the changes that can be made in federal policy to drive America’s innovation economy and to be more supportive of emerging entrepreneurial communities across our country.
