Startup America Policy Challenge

The White House announced the Startup America Policy Challenge in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Department of Energy, and the U.S. Department of Education.

The administration is asking entrepreneurs and the American public how to knock down barriers to innovation in healthcare IT, clean energy, and learning technologies. Entrepreneurs and other members of the public will post their ideas online. The public, including students, will be invited to translate the best ideas into “Policy Business Plans,” which will be shared with President Obama’s Cabinet.
