The startup community is large and fragmented. This makes organizing the community around policy issues to protect the Internet incredibly difficult. The Startup Policy Lab connects the startup community with policy advocates and policy makers through events organized around specific issues relevant to the community. These events focus on education and community building to empower individuals to engage with the policy process. Developing the startup community’s culture of advocacy and engagement requires access to information. The Startup Policy Lab is not advocacy organization. Rather, the Startup Policy Lab is a platform for the community to gather with a focus on education and engagement through events and multimedia content.
