"Now it is the turn of business, of investment managers to say 'OK, how are we going to get there, how do we have to change our investment patterns, how do we have to change the way in which we have been working for such a long time, in order to be able to get to the decarbonized economy in time?'"
Figueres' comments come in the wake of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry stating that clean energy was "one of the greatest economic opportunities the world has ever seen."

“1 the pot waste of large ++ of taxpayers’ $ - Gov support s applied indiscriminately 2 all nu firm/SMEs Apr4 Nesta https://t.co/DBZA8TwAk1— BizDeansTalk (@BizDeansTalk) April 4, 2016
New research by Nesta and the National Institute for Economic and Social Research sheds some light on this. The study analyses the sources of productivity growth in the UK over the period 1998-2013, using firm-level data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) to understand where productivity came from. Specifically, it assesses the importance of productivity improvements within individual firms in different sectors and the distribution and re-distribution of labour across more and less productive firms in different sectors.
These findings suggest a number of implications for policymakers. At Nesta we would like to draw attention to three.
First of all, the potential waste of large amounts of taxpayers’ money when Government support is applied indiscriminately to all new firms or SMEs. Such support is likely to exacerbate the problem of low productivity firms entering the market or remaining in the market, dragging down average levels of productivity.

U.S. Startups and investors who create jobs will now pay less tax. What now Europe? https://t.co/kotn68qZmL via techcrunch— Mike Butcher (@mikebutcher) January 26, 2016
French startups labouring under "excessive regulatory burdens". Plus ca change! https://t.co/7ThSvrxWS0— Mike Butcher (@mikebutcher) January 26, 2016
The impact this change will have on entrepreneurs, the lifeblood of the U.S. economy, is significant. This new code will enable a company’s founders and employees holding stock, including that obtained upon exercise of options, to save up to millions of dollars in taxes upon a company achieving a successful liquidation event.
Risk-taking entrepreneurs and investors who create jobs through building businesses will be rewarded for their efforts with lessened tax burdens. In this case, the disruptive innovation is a line of tax code rather than software code.
Known as Sec. 1202, it’s a small-business stock capital gains exclusion that has actually been around since 1993 (with modifications over the years). But thanks to Congress’ recent vote to PERMANENTLY extend some major tax benefits, it is more powerful than it has ever been because it eliminates all ambiguity.
In essence, Sec. 1202 allows individual investors or entrepreneurs and their employees who put money into a qualifying corporation with aggregate gross assets not exceeding $50 million before and immediately after the stock issuance, and which does not engage in repurchasing any of their outstanding stock, to now enjoy a 100 percent tax break on the specific investment gain with no offset to the benefit from the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT).

In what can be considered a historic day for startups, small businesses and entrepreneurs all across the United States, the Securities and Exchange Committee (SEC) voted 3 to 1 to approve the final rules for debt and equity crowdfunding (aka Regulation Crowdfunding) on Friday. In about 180 days, tech startups and Main Street businesses will be able to raise up to $1 million from their friends, followers, and community via SEC registered websites. There is a lot you need to know about the new rules, so let’s jump right in:

The G20 Young Entrepreneurs’ Alliance (G20 YEA) is a global network of young entrepreneurs and the organisations that support them. It was established to convene each year in advance of the G-20 Summit, with the aim of championing the importance of young entrepreneurs to the G20 member nations and to share examples and practices.

Beyond the gifts of nature, we are surrounded by creations that came from science. Yet, scientists are rarely the ones who make money from the advances that shape our world. While Silicon Valley creates billionaires before they turn 30, no Nobel Laureate has ever become a billionaire.
Steve Blank, often called one of the godfathers of Silicon Valley, wants to change that. After being approached by the biggest science-funding body in the US—the National Science Foundation (NSF)—he launched a program to train scientists to become entrepreneurs.
