About the Webinar

Many of the high-growth businesses that account for almost 50 percent of job creation are young, technology-enabled firms. Technology start-ups also sit at the heart of innovation and revolutionize industries, products, and our overall well-being. However, their potential for even greater success can be stifled by government policies and regulations. Dr. Palagashvili’s presentation explores how regulations influence technology start-ups in the United States and in Canada.

This is a previously recorded webinar. The recording includes a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute question and answer period by LIVE attendees. If you are interested in attending one of our upcoming webinars, look under the Upcoming Events tab.
