Help Us Advance Entrepreneurship

The California Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development Entrepreneurship Task Force will serve as a working group to share ideas and solutions to propel California’s next generation of innovative entrepreneurs and small and medium businesses, and to ensure that all California startups and established firms have access to the resources to grow or scale.

The Task Force will focus on what California can do to maintain its entrepreneurial and innovation leadership globally. We welcome you to share your experience with us and join us to help or partner with the Task Force.
