On Jul 20, 2022 Gusto sponsored a webinar with the Bipartisan Policy Center that focused on how public policy can help entrepreneurs.  In 2021, we saw a record number of new business starts, and Gusto’s data show that this wave of entrepreneurship was led by women and people of color.  Small businesses just survived the pandemic, and are now facing new economic headwinds.  Watch Alyssa Harvey Dawson, Gusto’s Chief Legal Officer, moderate a panel discussion of small business thought leaders on how public policy solutions can continue to support entrepreneurship in America.
