REPORT RELEASE: “Can Startups Save the American Dream?”

The Miller Center’s Milstein Symposium on the Middle Class released its second report on January 13th. 

The release, entitled “Can Startups Save the American Dream?” proposes a series of actionable, impactful and non-partisan ideas. The goal is to improve the middle class via targeted reforms impacting the entrepreneurial community.

The panel was held in Washington D.C. and was moderated by Steve Clemons of The Atlantic. The Commission’s Co-Chairs, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina and AOL founder Steve Case were in attendance. McKinsey’s Lenny Mendonca, Rockethub’s Brian Meece, and Ross Baird of Village Capital rounded out the discussion.

Miller Center CEO Bill Antholis made opening remarks, as did philanthropist and project funder Howard P. Milstein.

The report is the result of the second Commission in the ongoing Milstein Symposium on the Middle Class. The Miller Center partnered with U.Va.'s Batten Institute at the Darden School of Business.
