Last week, we announced the opening of the Center for Entrepreneurship, part of the Chamber's plan to focus on the needs of American entrepreneurs. Part of the center is an advisory board tasked with advocating for entrepreneurs, small business owners and those launching startups.
Stan Anderson, the managing director of the Campaign for Free Enterprise said the goal of the center will be to remove obstacles to entrepreneurship so that startup companies can create new businesses and jobs in the economy.

But one thing entrepreneurs didn't have much of in Washington was a voice, he said. The start-up community has plenty of backers and resources, but Anderson said many are non-profits and therefore can't lobby.
The Chamber's move to create a Center for Entrepreneurship follows President Barack Obama's creation of the Startup America program and the Chamber's own launch of the Campaign for a Free Enterprise. The latter has a goal of creating 20 million new jobs in the United States.
