In support of Entrepreneurs: An OpEd on the R&D Tax Credit

Posted by: in Austin Social Media, Thought Leadership on April 29, 2010

I wrote an OpEd with Dean Garfield, President and CEO of the Information Technology Industry Council, that  just appeared in the Austin American Statesman.

I am a strong believer in the power of the entrepreneur.  They provide great value to our world, ranging from starting a new biotechnology company to focus on a specific type of cancer to a technology company that is building a software solution that will make our lives more efficient.  They are the drivers of our economy. 

Look forward to your thoughts.  All the best, Bob
