This session will be an interactive conversation about the applicability of federal economic recovery legislation to the innovation economy, and what else should be done to support the work of entrepreneurs and startups in a COVID-19 world. We will examine what role federal grant and loan programs can play, and what can be done to ensure the availability of operating capital to protect employment and ensure continued innovation within early-stage companies.
The discussion will be led by Angus McQuilken, former Vice President of the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center, and a candidate for Congress in Massachusetts’ 6th Congressional District.
We are launching “Virtual Venture Café”. Virtual Venture Cafés will allow us to continue to share the great content produced by the Foundation while we monitor the evolving guidance on COVID-19. Our virtual Connect conference will be broadcasted during our standard Thursday timeframe. Please sign up for our newsletter and check our Event Calendar page for our changing schedule.
