With the JOBS Act (Jumpstart Our Business Startups) of 2012 being signed into law on April 5, 2012, startups and government are two communities that need to know more about each other. Engine.is is taking the first step in bridging that divide by selecting18-startups selected from across the nation to participate in the inaugural, ‘Startup Day on the Hill’.
Gokit will represent the Detroit startup community as part of this ground-breaking event. Wayne Sutton, Gokit Advisor and myself (Hajj Flemings CEO/Co-Founder of Gokit) will meet with influential Members of Congress on Capital Hill at the U.S. Capitol Building, June 19-20th.
It is a tremendous honor to represent the Detroit startup community, share my startup story and demo our product. The main focus of the 2-days is to discuss and create action items of how the government and startups can work together.
