Thomas J. Donohue, CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, delivered the “2018 State of American Business Address” on January 10th. After making the case for economic growth, Donohue outlined eight priorities for the 2018 and beyond. How can Startup Commons answer Donohue’s calls, assist American business, and drive economic growth in 2018?
Building the Workforce of the Future
As Donohue stated in the Address, “Growth doesn’t happen without people,” and we completely agree. Our Growth Academy provides a curriculum for training entrepreneurs and startup employees, as well as the educators and personnel who support them. If America desires high-growth companies, we will build the workforce that fuels them. Startup Commons also offers numerous services for higher education, including Open IPR and startup ecosystem consulting.
Embracing Technology in our Economy
Our mission is to help you develop high-tech startup ecosystems. Whether your region seeks govtech solutions or consulting, Startup Commons is your one-stop-shop for embracing technology.
Modernizing and Expanding Infrastructure
Does your state or city want to cultivate a thriving entrepreneurship ecosystem? If so, then you will need digital infrastructure to manage your ecosystem development efforts. Startup Commons’ Digital Ecosystem Applications can supply the digital infrastructure to build your region’s startup ecosystem. America has long been a global leader in telecommunications infrastructure, originating telephone lines and internet cables. Will you stay ahead of the curve with digital infrastructure and smart cities? Startup Commons is here to assist.
Reasserting American Leadership in the World
Does American want to be the leader in global innovation? Unfortunately, it will take more than Silicon Valley, Boston, and New York City. Luckily, Startup Commons can help America strengthen its startup ecosystems in other parts of the country. Regardless of your ecosystem’s maturity, we can help guide you to the next level with our training and software.
Fueling Business Growth
We are eager to help you build the strongest startup ecosystems in the world. All you need to do is ask.
Restoring Fiscal Health
According to Where the Jobs Are, startups create all net new jobs in the United States. If America wants to combat its rising debt and protect the middle class, then startups provide a key piece to the puzzle, supplying tax dollars and job opportunities.
Electing Pro-Growth Leaders
Our Digital Ecosystem Applications add transparency to economic development. We force leaders to ‘walk their talk,’ by holding them accountable to their communities. To further increase accountability, Startup Commons will help you structure public-private partnerships for startup ecosystem development and data handling.
Protecting Free Speech and Civil Discourse
Since our software facilitates transparency and trust, we create space for civil discourse. Additionally, we promote open knowledge and best-practice sharing. Similar to Thomas J. Donohue, Startup Commons champions freedom as a means for economic growth.
Will You Work with Us?
What are you waiting for, Americans? It is time to reassert your leadership in the world. Startup Commons is here to help.
