Entrepreneurship in the New Economy

Wednesday, November 3, 2021 | 10:00 AM
The Committee on Small Business will hold a hybrid hearing titled: “Entrepreneurship in the New Economy.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 A.M. on Wednesday, November 3, 2021 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building. Participating members can also join remotely via Zoom.

The COVID-19 pandemic hit small businesses particularly hard, yet the number of startups across the country surged in 2020. The boom in entrepreneurship is not only unexpected but reversing four decades of steady declines. This hearing will examine the increase in American entrepreneurship and discuss how businesses are rebuilding from a once-in-a-generation economic crisis. Members will hear from experts alongside small business owners that will describe the changing nature of the economy coming out of the pandemic.
