Millennials have transformed the concept of entrepreneurship in the 21st century. Through their hard work, determination, and execution of innovative ideas, millennial-led companies that did not exist ten or twenty years ago are now helping to lead our economic recovery. Entrepreneurs of all ages have created millions of jobs for young people around the country using the same principles and philosophies that guided our founders. Future Caucus members understand that American success is forged by entrepreneurs willing to take risks, from the small businesses on Main Street to the major technology startups in Silicon Valley.
The United States House recently passed a bipartisan bill lead by Future Caucus member Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ). H.R. 4498, the Helping Angels Lead Our Startups (HALOS) Act, seeks to remove barriers for entrepreneurs in making pitches to investors in public places. Overall, this measure would ease the fundraising process for entrepreneurs and strengthen the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
