Innovation, Meet Regulation: A Tri-Sector Approach

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Startups increasingly must tangle with federal and local regulators in order to see their innovations take root and scale to a meaningful degree. Lyft and Airbnb are prime examples of this emerging trend.
This trend will continue as industries that are ripe for disruption – healthcare, education, transportation and energy – all ooze with regulations. Technological changes are happening at a rapid pace, but lawmakers struggle to keep up. If America is going to remain the global innovation leader, what are the best practices that entrepreneurs, citizens, and regulators must adopt?
Our panel will strive to take a tri-sector approach to facilitating an interactive dialogue around the challenge of innovation amidst regulation. We will bring together stakeholders from .com (Washington Post, Founder's Fund) to .gov (White House / National Economic Council) to .edu (Minerva) to spotlight diverse perspectives around this complex topic.
