Innovations in the School to Small Business Pipeline

Fri, 11/22/2019 - 11:00am

(MST) on Friday, November 22, 2019 at Cherry Creek Innovation Campus, 8000 S Chambers Road, Centennial, CO 80112.

Small businesses remain in need of employees, particularly in highly skilled positions. While traditional academic institutions play an important role in helping to fill the workforce development gap, they often do not provide adequate job training outside the classroom. To fill the gap, Colorado is embracing new and innovative approaches towards educating young people and creating a school-to-business pipeline. This hearing will explore how schools are changing their priorities to supply a much needed workforce and what policies can help promote these efforts.

Upskilling the Medical Workforce: Opportunities in Health Innovation

Wed, 11/13/2019 - 11:30am

The Committee on Small Business will meet for a hearing titled, “Upskilling the Medical Workforce: Opportunities in Health Innovation.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 11:30 A.M. on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

It is predicted that America faces a doctor shortage upwards of 100,000 doctors by 2030, which could disproportionately affect rural and underserved communities. Beyond training more doctors, opportunities in innovative healthcare practices offers another method to proactively address the shortage. Telehealth and HealthIT have the potential to help many small medical practices manage patient information, be more efficient, and provide the most effective treatment. This hearing will analyze ways the health care workforce can be trained to leverage these new technologies to lower costs, incentivize start-ups, and provide quality care.

Fostering the American Dream: How SBA Can Empower Immigrant Small Business Owners

Fri, 11/08/2019 - 10:00am
The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Investigations, Oversight, and Regulations will hold a hearing titled, “Fostering the American Dream: How SBA Can Empower Immigrant Small Business Owners.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 A.M. (PST) on Friday, November 8, 2019 at Rosemead City Hall, 8838 East Valley Boulevard, Rosemead, CA 91770.

The United States is currently home to over 43 million immigrants and over 3 million have started small businesses. These companies pay an estimated $126 billion in wages to six million people and generate over $65 billion in income. Recognizing their economic contributions, the hearing will focus on how the federal government can better assist immigrant entrepreneurs desiring to start a small business. Members will learn why immigrants are more likely to start new businesses but less likely to have access to traditional sources of capital, and how the Small Business Administration’s programs, such as entrepreneurial development and lending programs like the Community Advantage program can help immigrant business owners succeed.

The economic prosperity of the nation is impacted by the growing recreational and tourism sector, which is served by many small businesses.

Creating the Clean Energy Workforce

Tue, 10/29/2019 - 10:00am

The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Innovation and Workforce Development will hold a hearing titled, “Creating the Clean Energy Workforce.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 A.M. on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

The clean energy workforce has skyrocketed to over 4 million jobs due to dropping technology costs, more demand for clean and efficient energy technology, and supportive policies and investment at the local and state levels. With solar and wind increasing by 24.5% and 16 percent respectively from 2016 to 2017, solar and wind jobs are now outnumbering coal and gas jobs in 30 states and the District of Columbia. Further, energy efficiency jobs make up most of the clean energy workforce, supporting at least 2.2 million jobs across the country. As the country continues to develop and utilize this workforce, it is critical the voices of small businesses are heard as they employ many of these workers and need a steady pipeline of skilled workers. The hearing will delve into the various facets of the renewable energy workforce and the needs of small employers.

Tue, 10/22/2019 - 10:00am

Recognizing the positive impact that the SBA’s 8(a) program could have on tribal communities living in devastating poverty with little to no economic opportunity, Congress created the exceptions in the law for enterprises owned communally by tribes, Alaska Native Corporations and Native Hawaiian Organizations – community-based organizations required to provide social, economic and cultural benefits to their Native owners in perpetuity. The hearing will assess the past, present, and future issues surrounding the program in order to ensure it is operating in accordance with Congressional intent.

Harvesting the Digital Age: Connecting our Communities for a Better Future

Mon, 10/21/2019 - 1:00pm

The Committee on Small Business Subcommittee on Rural Development, Agriculture, Trade, and Entrepreneurship will meet for a field hearing titled, “Harvesting the Digital Age: Connecting our Communities for a Better Future.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 1:00 P.M. on Monday, October 21, 2019 at Adams County Agricultural and Natural Resources Center, 670 Old Harrisburg Road, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania 17325-3404.

Without the ability to disseminate the high costs of deployment or leverage economies of scale, small communities often rely on assistance from the Federal Communications Commission and the Department of Agriculture to mitigate these high costs. Recent improvements to these programs have helped, but more can be done, especially as Congress debates an infrastructure bill. Over the last couple of years, Congress has enacted several bipartisan efforts to quickly increase the amount of resources available to these communities, but a lack of clarity leaves many of these programs underutilized.
