There was a great online discussion taking place on Twiter about how young entrepreneurs, Venture Capitalists, Micro-VCs, the Generation Iowa Commission, young politicians and legislators can work together to really address the brain drain by harnessing small businesses and startups.
I organized this so we could take the online conversation to those we were talking about. To that end, I believe a roundtable is the best way to have this discussion.
Our roundtable will include:
Matt Kinley of Equity Dynamics
Representative from the Technology Association of Iowa
Some food for thought:
Is salary really the cause?
Are young entrepreneurs the answer?
How can we connect young entrepreneurs with resources?
Million dollar VC funding vs. micro VC funding
Would leveraging lobbyists and younger elected officials offer a solution to enacting (immediate) change?
If so, what kind?
Food will be provided.
