Since its launch in July of 2017, the Center for American Entrepreneurship (CAE) has established itself as the premier entrepreneurship organization in Washington, DC, working with U.S. policymakers on behalf of American startups and entrepreneurs. In just four years, CAE has established strong working relationships with key Members of Congress, their staff, and key Committees, established the first-ever Entrepreneurship Caucuses in both the House and Senate, and contributed to more than a dozen pieces of entrepreneurship-related legislation.
With the two Caucuses now established and active—and given the policy priority of accelerating the post-Covid economic recovery—CAE has an unprecedented opportunity to make major progress on a wide range of issues critical to American entrepreneurship, with the aim of building a stronger, more resilient, and inclusive U.S. economy.
To help us capitalize on this unique opportunity, CAE is pleased to announce the establishment of the American Entrepreneurship Policy Coalition (AEPC)—a national support and collaboration network comprised of startups, entrepreneurship centers, university-based entrepreneurship programs, state and local innovation entities, and other groups interested in and supportive of pro-entrepreneurship public policy.
In exchange for an annual $5,000 tax-deductible contribution to CAE (a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization), AEPC members will receive:
- Access to, explanation of, and opportunities to contribute to CAE’s entrepreneurship and innovation agenda;
- Access to CAE staff, information, political reconnaissance, and understanding regarding pending federal legislation and regulatory activity;
- A monthly newsletter detailing all entrepreneurship- and innovation-related policy activity in Washington;
- Flash email updates regarding emerging entrepreneurship-related policy developments;
- Free admission to CAE briefings and webinars;
- When completed, proprietary access to CAE’s regularly updated catalogue of all federal entrepreneurship policies, programs, and initiatives;
- Participation of CAE staff on policy-related panels at conferences or other AEPC-member events, as requested; and,
- Pre-release briefings on all CAE research.
We are also open to other requests that might be of value to AEPC members.
