Put Washington to Work for Startups

Engine Advocacy is excited to report that legislation was introduced in the in the House yesterday to partner with Startup Act 2.0, a bipartisan bill unveiled two weeks ago in the Senate. Startup Act 2.0 addresses the critical needs of startups, especially on issues such as immigration, innovation, and capital gains. As a result, we’ve launched an action page to help our members and startups like them support this legislation.

Adoption of the bill would make startups more competitive, flexible, and capable of delivering market-leading products and services to American customers. In turn, startups can continue driving job growth in the U.S. economy.

We applaud Senators Jerry Moran, Mark Warner, Chris Coons, and Marco Rubio as well as Representatives Michael Grimm, Loretta Sanchez, Kevin Yoder, Jared Polis, Devin Nunes, Russ Carnahan, and Robert Dold for introducing this much-needed legislation and ask their colleagues to join in putting startups and small businesses first in Washington.

Bill Highlights:

To show support for this innovative legislation, we are encouraging all of our members and their users to call their representative and let them know that now is the time for Washington to get to work for startups.
