Senator Rosen Is Senate Chair Of This Year’s Congressional Startup Day
RENO, NV – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) visited Lulius Innovation in Reno to celebrate Congressional Startup Day and discuss ways she’s working to help Nevada startups, small businesses, and entrepreneurs thrive. Lulius is a small veteran-owned software company in Reno that focuses on providing information technology solutions for the federal government, military, and commercial businesses. Congressional Startup Day is a bipartisan event held each year that recognizes the innovation and entrepreneurship of startups across the country, and Senator Rosen is serving as the Senate Chair this year.
“Nevada has no shortage of innovators and entrepreneurs, and I’m working every day to advocate on their behalf to ensure they have the resources to grow and thrive in our state,” said Senator Rosen. “I met with Lulius Innovation to learn more about the critical work they’re doing to improve our Army aviation readiness and discuss ways to support startup businesses in Nevada.”
“Congressional Startup Day shines a bright light on the companies and innovations that have the power to transform the way businesses work alongside government entities, including the military,” said Rich Ferguson, CEO of Lulius Innovation. “Senator Rosen is one of just a few members of Congress who understand the platform we’ve built and how it will change the way the Army manages its operations and readiness. She’s focused on efficiency. We are so fortunate to have her as our Nevada U.S. Senator and grateful for her support.”
Senator Rosen has been a consistent advocate for technological innovation and small businesses in Nevada. She recently helped to pass the CHIPS and Science Act, a bipartisan legislative package that makes historic investments in scientific research through the National Science Foundation and includes several of her provisions to bolster workforce development and STEM education. Senator Rosen is a member of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship and the Senate Armed Services Committee.
