Can Washington Protect the Net Economy?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Join the Internet Association, US policymakers, and tech leaders to discuss the issues facing tech, innovation, and entrepreneurs in the new Congress. Are we keeping score yet?
The New Economy is driven by founders, funders, innovators, entrepreneurs, and the consumers who fuel them. For decades, US policymakers have been behind the pace of innovation and seemingly too inundated by the rapidly changing landscape to sort through the noise and launch policies to protect both the consumer and the competitive landscape. Until now. Join Washington’s public and private sector champions of innovation and entrepreneurs for a series of discussions on the 114th Congress’ challenges and opportunities; the likelihood of progress on privacy, patent reform, capital access, open internet, spectrum allocation, and cybersecurity; and what YOU can do to make a difference.
The Internet Association represents America’s leading Internet companies and their global community of users.
Presented by the Dell ATC Policy Labs
