Please join Lincoln Network, in partnership with CALinnovates and 1776, as we host top influencers representing the Trump Administration, Congress and the innovation economy who will provide insights regarding what to expect in the coming months.
Lincoln Network recently released preliminary results from a Entrepreneur Survey on Government Regulation, to coincide with the pledge by President-elect Trump to enact significant regulatory changes within the first one hundred days of his administration.

Lincoln Network was born from the optimistic view that when technology and public policy meet, under the right conditions and with the right tools, both worlds win. Through hackathons, meetups and online engagement, we provide opportunities for the entrepreneurial community to come together and both collaborate on and learn about market-based, tech-powered solutions to our nation's biggest problems.
CALinnovates educates policymakers, elected officials and regulators on the virtues of delivering a 21st Century digital economy on issues of importance to the technology community at the local, state and federal levels of public policy.
