On Wednesday, June 29, 2016 at 10:00am EDT, the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship (SBC) will hold a hearing entitled, “America Without Entrepreneurs: The Consequences of Dwindling Startup Activity.”

During Wednesday’s hearing, Committee Members will examine the recent trends in entrepreneurship and hear testimony from witnesses with insight into why startup activity has declined, particularly among millennials, and methods to support and inspire more Americans to start their own small businesses.
