Author: Remove Regulatory Shackles to Boost Startup Job Growth

Susan Hall

In a podcast at Harvard Business Review, serial entrepreneur and author Henry Nothhaft argues that it's imperative that individual executives get involved in policy affecting their businesses.


He says that to reboot our country's job engine, startups, specifically venture capital-backed tech companies, which he describes as "gazelles" for their ability to scale and produce jobs, must be freed from the shackles of regulation, specifically Sarbanes-Oxley. He advocates carving out exemptions for companies with market valuations of up to $500 million.


In his book, "Great Again: Revitalizing America's Entrepreneurial Leadership," he calls for patent reform, fixing government support for science and research, offering incentives to revive manufacturing and fixing immigration policy to prevent a "brain drain."
