Startup Public Policy with Congressman Adam Smith

Public PolicyCongressman Adam Smith (D-WA) will be joining us to discuss some of the very exciting state and federal public policy issues being bandied about both in Olympia and on Capital Hill in Washington D.C.

A skilled lawyer and a longtime public servant–starting as a WA State Senator at the young age of 25–Congressman Smith has taken an active role in the advocacy of small business in his district and across the U.S.

Currently there are many policies in the works that could benefit the startup community. His insights into how policy is written, some of the obstacles the new policies face and proposed changes in current rules may help those who are planning on crowdfunding, wondering about changes in compliance or just engaged in the future of the community as a whole.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity!
