Washington — The Computer & Communications Industry Association applauds the introduction of the Startup Act by Senators Jerry Moran, R-Kan., and Mark Warner, D-Va., along with Senators Roy Blunt, R-Mo., and Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn. The bill takes important steps toward promoting innovation and a high tech workforce.

The StartUp Act would create incentives for startup investment, and research and development, as well as visas for entrepreneurs and STEM students from abroad who earn graduate degrees from U.S. universities.

The following can be attributed to CCIA President & CEO Ed Black:

“The Startup Act would help position U.S. firms for success in the fierce competition for capital and talent worldwide. We appreciate the senators’ taking steps to ensure the US has both the ideas and the workforce to remain a global leader in innovation. It’s crucial to encourage more entrepreneurs to launch their startups here and this legislation would do that.”
