In the past few decades, American companies that started in dorm rooms and cubicles and garages and university laboratories have changed the world. We urge our fellow members of Congress to join us on Thursday for Start-Up Day Across America as we meet the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders, innovators, and job creators within each of our communities. Let us celebrate, recognize and encourage those who are building startup companies and capitalizing on that essential innovative entrepreneurial spirit that since our country’s beginning has catalyzed and been intertwined with American progress.
