Thanks to Congressman Capuano and City of Somerville Mayor Curtatone for dropping in yesterday at Venture Cafe to check on how, WE the innovation community, are doing. Congressman Capuano and Mayor Curtatone said a few words to the crowd, answered a couple of burning questions and chatted with entrepreneurs.
What were the questions on our mind? Mostly the recent hot topics around legalizing crowdfunding investments, reforming visa laws for entrepreneurs and capital gains tax on investments. For more details check out this writeup Michael Capuano on crowdfunding, the IPO bill and the startup visa by Kyle Alspach of the BBJ. Kyle was in the Cafe for open office hours (see 7 Local Startups I met last night)
