Federal Investment and Innovation Legislation

“I know from experience how difficult it can be for small businesses to reach potential investors. That’s why it’s a tremendous point of pride that my legislation stimulating small business investment passed unanimously last month!
Its primary objectives are:
1/ Promoting funding for small businesses by including them in innovation, technology, and research programs
2/ Increasing the capital available to private investors to devote to small businesses
3/ Promoting diversity by encouraging participants to use funding for outreach to women- and minority-owned firms
California is an epicenter of innovation, made possible through the ingenuity and drive of start-ups and small business owners, and a community ready to support them.

If we want a world-class economy, that means empowering small businesses — not just big corporations — through policies that encourage research and development and innovation.

Orange County is home to hundreds of small businesses that can benefit from this new investment and increased diversity. I’m looking forward to finding new ways to support them, and to keeping Orange County on the cutting edge of technological innovation.” – Harley Rouda
