Hillary Clinton has revealed one of her ideas, outlining her vision for technology and innovation in the United States.
On Thursday (June 30), the Democratic nominee stated that she wants to improve science and tech education in under-resourced schools, to delay student loan payback for graduates who launch tech start-ups, to get high-speed internet to the whole country, to set up free Wi-Fi at airports and train stations, along with a variety of other policies aimed at ensuring US competitiveness in a global, technology-focused economic marketplace.
According to Fusion.net, the platform is comprehensive, addressing topics such as patents, surveillance and STEM education. Where as some of the more interesting aspects of Clinton’s platform are focused on entrepreneurship.
For example, take her proposal to defer student loans for entrepreneurs who are starting new businesses; that shows that fewer millennials are starting businesses than their predecessors, Clinton’s platform calls for letting entrepreneurs defer student loan debt for three years while they start their business.
Clinton’s platform will also “explore a similar deferment incentive not just to founders of enterprises, but to early joiners – such as the first 10 or 20 employees.”
