President Barack Obama was in Cleveland, Ohio yesterday to get feedback from local start-ups and small businesses on what the administration can do to further support innovation in America.
The trip, called Winning 'The Future and co-hosted by Knight grantee Jumpstart, comes on the heels of the announcement of Start-up America, of which Jumpstart will play an important role. The President stressed the importance of inventing new industries and supporting small business. The Knight Foundation recently funded Jumpstart to set up entrepreneurial support networks in 6 Knight cities across the country. The president will continue his Winning the Future Tour in 6 other cities across the county.
